US COMPANIES FLEXIBLE DESPITE RECESSION


According to the 2010 Society for Human Resource Management Employee Benefits Survey, "almost one half (49%) of organizations offered flextime, which allows employees to select their work hours within limits established by the employer. More than one-third (34%) of organizations offered compressed workweeks, where full-time employees are allowed to work longer days for part of a week or pay period in exchange for shorter days or a day off during that week or pay period. Thirteen percent offered job sharing, in which two employees share the responsibilities, accountability and compensation of one full-time job."
