With Flextime, Bosses Prefer Early Birds to Night Owls

With Flextime, Bosses Prefer Early Birds to Night Owls | Higher & Int 2 Business Management | Scoop.it

Flextime programs have never been more popular than they are today. Google allows many employees to set their own hours. At Microsoft, many employees can choose when to start their day, as long as it’s between 9am and 11am. At the “Big Four” auditing firm KPMG, some 70 percent of employees work flexible hours.

 

Employees love these programs because they help them avoid compromises between home and at work. Yes, there are often boundaries within which a work day must begin and end, and at least some chunk of core hours that remain common across employees. But within those constraints, workers can schedule their office hours around the various other demands on their time, giving them greater control over their lives and allowing them to accomplish more. And because employees love the programs, companies have learned to love them, too.

Even though they work the same number of hours. Research shows that in general, flexible work practices lead to increased productivity, higher job satisfaction, and decreased turnover intentions.

Lee Werrell's curator insight, May 16, 2014 5:22 AM

Flexitime is a great opportunity for people to fit work and play into their day, but many don't look at it from their bosses point of view - now they can see what bosses think.
