Companies who offer flexible work options are in high demand across the country.

Have you thought about a flexible work policy for your company? 

Things to consider include:

  • Examine which positions in your company can have varied hours or can be performed remotely.
  • Put into place a series of checks and balances to ensure work is being done in a timely manner.
  • Switching from desktop to laptop computers, providing cell phones and subsidizing access to the internet from home that allows remote access for your employees.

When considering implementing a flexible work place policy, the most important feature is the demonstration from the top down of the commitment to the plan. Your employees have to know that they are encouraged to utilize the plan.
