Flexible Work Schedule

A flexible work schedule represents an alternative to a standard work week (which is most often 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and/or standard work location.A flexible work schedule may benefit employees and departments and contribute to a positive work/life culture. Some examples include:

  • Extended hours of operation for more customer service (more hours with same amount of staff)
  • Reduced turnover
  • Improved morale, commitment, and productivity
  • Additional office space

Flexible work schedules may not meet the needs of every individual employee or department. Use the Flexible Work Schedule Proposal to initiate discussion between employees and their departments.
