Minority of Employees Have Flextime, but Majority Want It

More than 2 in 5 (44%) workers have access to traditional flextime*. "Of the 56% of U.S. workers who do not have access [to traditional flextime], two-thirds (67%) express a desire for it." Employees without access to traditional flextime who want it are more likely younger workers (74% and 75% of workers from the Millennial and Generation X generations, respectively, compared with 64% and 47% of workers in the Baby Boom and Mature generations, respectively), according to a 2010 analysis of data from the 2008 National Study of the Changing Workforce.
