Overview

Flexible work arrangements are the most common way employers can meet their staffing needs while giving their workers a valuable benefit. Instead of employees planning their day around a work schedule as in generations past, jobs that allow for alternative scheduling let employees meet their obligations in a way that suits their needs and still ensures job responsibilities are met.

Flexible work programs are work arrangements wherein employees are given greater scheduling freedom in how they fulfill the obligations of their positions.The most commonplace of these programs is flextime, which gives workers far greater leeway in terms of the time when they begin and end work, provided they put in the total number of hours required by the employer.Other common flexible working arrangements involve telecommuting, job-sharing, and compressed work weeks.

Studies show that employees who participate in flex work arrangements report higher levels of job satisfaction, reduced levels of burnout, and less psychological stress than employees at companies who do not offer flex work arrangements.
