Although the full menu of flexible schedules might not be available in your agency today, they may be again in the future. Now is the time to do your research and polish your proposal, so you can be ready when the time is right. Here are some things to keep in mind when proposing a flexible schedule.

The Business Case for Flexibility

Research has shown that flexibility is a powerful business tool:

  • Attract and retain talent
  • Enhance employee productivity, effectiveness and engagement
  • Improve employee health and well-being and reduce stress
  • Save millions in turnover costs*

*According to the 2008 Workforce Report, the turnover rate for State covered employees was 14.8% with an overall total cost of $49,247,661.00

The Employee Resource listings have also been updated to include new resources. Be sure to look them over to see what’s new. One thing you’ll find is a new Financial Resources page, loaded with educational sites and calculators.
