    Flexibility at Workplace
    Flexibility at WorkplaceUgh…When can an employee run his personal errands if he works in an organization where working hours are extended? Well, if the bosses allow their staff with some flexibility, then that’s okay. Otherwise, oftentimes, employees simply escape during...

    You are absolutely right, Mohammed. For the first time in my life, I work now in a company on which the owner has this thing crystal clear. We have a flexible timetable on which you can start from 6:30 to 8:30, and depending on the time you check in you can leave sooner or later. One day you can work longer or shorter hours, depending on your personal needs. We have a limit of +/- 150 hours a year, this means, we can accumulate extra hours and then ask for free days, or we can take free days and then work extra hours to recover, so by the end of the year, you need to balance the amount. So you can attend your personal issues, and still work your 40 weekly average hours, but every worker has the right to manage them. This makes people working more efficiently, as you don't need to "sneak" time during your working hours to attend personal issues, or if one day has been too stressful, you can leave earlier and come back next day with renewed strength. I admire my boss because it is a very clever solution, very thoughtful for his workers, which does not mean he is "loosing" working hours.

    #5 @Lisa Gallagher Thanks for your appreciation and sharing this post. Good to know about your husband's generosity. With timely flexibility when essential errands gets done then we all feel peace of mind. Believe me, where workplaces chart out stringent rules and restrictions there's a scary, suffocating atmosphere. Perhaps, employees keep their mouths shut for fear of losing their jobs. Simply, they embrace suffering and think nothing for any bold, mannerly plea.

    Vital topic @Mohammed A. Jawad! My husband gives comp time to allow his employees these necessary freedoms. We both worked many long days while raising children without the luxury (necessity ) for time to run errands during normal business hours, take sick children to the Dr, accompany them on an occasional field trip, attend school events held during day etc... after knowing how tough this can be on people it goves one more insight and empathy. I wish most places could be more flexible.

    Great buzz, Mohammed! Work flexibility is a big trend at U.S. companies and is necessary for an employer to attract talent in a global workforce -- especially among younger generations like Millennials and Gen Z. I think telework (remote work, telecommuting) is a critically important part of the solution in today's fast-evolving mobile, digital and virtual Information Age, per my blog post here https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/top-10-reasons-why-telework-makes-good-business-sense-in-the-digital-age Keep buzzing onward and upward, my friend!

    Good engagement paves to worthwhile happiness! Being disconnected or divisive, there's little for enjoyment.
