Trends in Workplace Flexibility

A Report by WorldatWork, Underwritten by FlexJobs

Survey

Flexibility practices vary by organization, but overall prevalence of these programs has remained fairly consistent since 2013. The vast majority of organizations continue to offer telework on an ad-hoc basis, flexible start and stop times, and part-time schedules. Despite concerns that changing rules regarding healthcare coverage may lead to full-time positions being replaced with part-time workers, the data indicates that part-time schedules are less common now than in the recent past.

Survey Results

Summary

By far, the most prevalent flexibility programs offered are telework on an ad-hoc basis, flex time and part-time schedules (with or without benefits). These programs are each offered to some or all employees in more than 80% of organizations. The average number of flexibility programs offered by responding organizations is 6.1, not including “combination of programs” as a possibility. Of the 3% of organizations without flexibility programs, resistance from management and lack of jobs conducive to flexible work arrangements are frequently cited. Ad-hoc teleworking is consistently utilized and within the top three programs, if not the top program utilized, among all sectors. Over two-thirds of managers (67%) offer flexibility to all or most of their employees either at their own discretion, or they are generally encouraged to find mutually beneficial solutions.
