The types of flexible working arrangements
In order to implement flexible working in your organization, you must understand the distinctive nature of each flexible working arrangements. This would help you adopt the one best suited for your requirement.

● Telecommunicating

Telecommunicating indicates a part-time, flexible working schedule wherein employees visit the office premise on semi-regular intervals. This can be a full-time job, especially for those living in the vicinity of their office location. This arrangement instills productivity when employees visit the office twice or thrice a week.

● Remote Working

Remote working enables the option to work from any geo-location within the country or abroad. It is best suited for organizations saving down additional expenses of office setup and easing the task for employees to work on-the-go. It is also viable for businesses looking to expand their applicant pool. Here consistent communication and video conferencing are the keys to success.

● Condensed Workweeks

Instead of building a schedule of 9 working hours for 5 days a week, you can condense it with 10 hours for 4 days and add Friday as a holiday. This arrangement functions best for those hardworking employees compatible with long working hours and 3 days of the weekend.

● Customized working hours

What can be more enticing for your employees than a custom-built working schedule with their flexibility of time? While it is best for working mothers to arrive in office the late morning after completing the household task, a student may feel comfortable in an evening shift. So if you allow your employees to choose a time between 6 AM – 9 AM, that can ease their work-life balance and enhance productivity.

● Part-time job position

Several job seekers are interested in part-time job positions, which they can pursue a side job post their full-time job timings or as a regular job. Introducing this type of flexibility will boost productivity if coupled with a few benefit packages.

Another type of flexible working is job sharing, which somewhat resembles part-time jobs. In these, two or more part-time job seekers share full-time work. While it may not sit fit for many organizations, but it works best for certain businesses. Well, it's a win-win for both employer and employee because, as an employee, you have the flexible bandwidth to complete the assignment. In contrast, as an employer, you are saved from the perks of giving full-time employee benefits.

● The flexibility of Vacation Timing

Does your organization value performance more than work hour timings? Then offering unlimited paid offs can become your status quo to bolster business. If you value employees as productive assets, then you can be generous in granting them leaves.
