Occasional day-to-day flexibility

Flextime:
Workday start and end times are flexible

Teleworking:
Working from a remote location one or more days a week

Less than Fulltime:
Working a reduced work schedule, and being compensated accordingly

Job Sharing:

Compressed Work Schedules (United States Only):
Options to work longer days in exchange for a day off or one shorter work day during that period

Meeting Free:

Leave Programs:
Personal leave options to help employees manage important needs
