For employees whose job does not lend itself to teleworking, Flextime may be a viable option. Employees working on Flextime are able to select the hours they will work, which can be tailored around peak travel times on public transit or traffic. For example, an employee can just as easily work from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. as they can from the traditional 9:00 to 5:00 schedule. By coming in earlier and leaving earlier, they can avoid some of the rush hour crunch. To read more about the benefits of Flextime, click here.
Employees can also work compressed work weeks. Instead of working five 8-hour days, employees working compressed work weeks work four 10-hour days and take the traditional fifth day off.
