What are the Benefits and Challenges of Implementing a Flexible Work Program?

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] Flexible work, from compressed work weeks to job sharing to telecommuting to adjustable schedules, has bloomed over the past decade with changes in technology and life demands. 43% of U.S. workers work remotely at least some of the time and 62% of companies have pockets of flexibility in place. Globally, 20% of workers spend at least part of their job working from home. Flexible work arrangement adoption has increased in order to offer employees the ability to adjust their schedules to meet personal needs and to offer employers the ability to meet the needs of the organization. Oftentimes, flexible work options are no longer perceived as an additional benefit but an expected element of a job.
