Location: Work is done 100% remotely or in a hybrid (some remote, some in-office) setting.
Schedule: Employees work outside of the traditional 8 am – 5 pm hours or the traditional 5-day work week. A flexible schedule may look like working from 7 am – 4 pm or working Monday to Thursday.
Hours: Professionals work <30 hours part-time, in a job share arrangement, or between 30-40 hours full-time.
Culture: Companies measure success by reaching goals versus time in the office. For example, a role may require 40 hours, primarily in-office. But employees attend child’s school functions, games, and doctor’s appointments without explaining exactly when they will be back and how they will make up that time.
Without Lauren, the project would not have been completed and our customer would have become frustrated. Finding someone with the skillset and available time to tackle this job was critical – and proved to be very effective for Deep South Freight. I would certainly use Boulo again for a future project that comes our way.
Boulo has been such a great resource for me. I moved to the Birmingham area a year and a half ago, and I had my second child shortly after the move.I have been freelancing for several years, but I found myself needing extra help forming business connections in a new city. Boulo came at the perfect time and was able to connect me with a job that was flexible and fit my schedule perfectly. I am so thankful to have found a fit that utilizes my creative skills, while allowing me to have flexibility to still have afternoon play dates and stay home if my girls are sick.
Given our continued growth, we had an urgent need for an additional part-time customer success representative. Boulo took our job description and quickly provided us with two great candidates. The candidate we hired has proven to be a quick learner, a team player, and someone who shares our passion for serving customers well. I’m grateful that Boulo helped us quickly fill an urgent need and add another valuable member to our growing team.
