Types of Flexible Work Arrangements

There are several types of flexible work arrangements. Employees and supervisors should carefully consider each arrangement to decide what will work best for unit or department. Options include:

  • Compressed work week - A program designed to allow eligible full time staff members to work longer scheduled days of work.
  • Flex-time - A program designed to allow staff to work “core hours” with either early or late beginning/ending of the workday.
  • Job-sharing - A program in which two people share a position, each working part of the week.
  • Part-time work - A work schedule that is less than full-time but is at least half of the regularly scheduled full time.
  • Telecommuting - A program designed to allow staff to work a portion of their normally scheduled work hours from a remote location.
