Flex-time: Time to Go?
Before the recession hit, flex-work arrangements had emerged as one of the ways employers kept their best employees from eying greener pastures.
As a result, an increasing number of employees telecommuted a few days a week; others packed a five-day week into four 10-hour days; and still others worked part-time.
But as the nation’s economic woes have deepened, flex-timers are now wondering if they’re targets for layoffs.
Forbes.com reports they fear that out of sight means out of mind—and out of a job.
Which raises a question: with many companies struggling for survival, is it time to put flex-time on hold or out to pasture?
Or are such deals needed now, more than ever, especially as workers have to row harder and harder, often while juggling mounting personal and professional pressure? Let us know.
