Flexible Employment

Flexible employment may not be an option in certain industries, but clearly the trend continues to pick up significant momentum. Companies sensitive to work-life balance issues are creating flexible schedules in hopes of boosting job satisfaction and preventing employees from seeking other opportunities.

Whether it’s remote employment, home employment or a variation, you’ll find an abundance of beneficial information in our library. We consistently add interesting and helpful summaries to this category so you stay current with trends in flexible employment. You’ll learn about the wide variety of flexible employment options and practices, including staggered start times, telecommuting, compressed work weeks and job sharing.

Mutual Benefits
