The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recognizes flexible work schedules as "an alternative to the traditional, 9-to-5, 40 hour work week." The DOL also states that company policies may require employees to be present during "core hours" with the rest of their schedule up to them. Flexible jobs and work schedules are becoming more and more prevalent in the United States, in fact, Ohio State has its own Flexible Work Policy and a Flexible Work Toolkit. Flexible work schedules can help to decrease stress, ease the burdens of childcare expenses, and help employees avoid lengthy commutes. With modern technology and employees working from home more than ever, remote work and flexible jobs are predicted to be the future, allowing people to work when, where, and how they are the most productive. Flexible work arrangements also save employers money and improve employee happiness and job satisfaction. Sound appealing? Then join us for a casual discussion on flexible work. Those who have flexible work arrangements are encouraged to attend, as well as those who are hoping to incorporate this kind of work into their life. Session led by ASFW Past President, Rachel Kaschner.
