My department member wants to work flexible hours, but how is that fair?

Not everyone has the same needs or work style, and not all jobs have the same kinds of requirements, so flexible work hours can help address those differences that already exist, while enabling people to be happier, healthier and more productive. Some situations are very conducive to flexible scheduling, and some are not. It’s important to look at the nature of the work, the impact on the office productivity and responsiveness along with the needs of the employee, and explore the capacity to reconcile those elements with a less rigid and more flexible schedule. It might be easier than you think! You can contact the WorkLife Office to discuss the options that might be available to and be the best fit for you and your work team.
