Flexibility is Key

Here’s a great NY Times article on why employers should really consider flexible work hours as a key component of recruiting and retention efforts. We just started trying to be more flexible this spring and it took several months of hand wringing before we could at least partially implement flexible hours. Teleworking has been in place at our work site for a long time, but is only used by a few.  We now do Flex Fridays which encourages everyone to get their 80 hours in nine days and take every other Friday off. It works great when you throw in a Thursday July 4th Holiday. What a great, long weekend. A great employee benefit in my opinion.
