Summary

Focuses on the issue of workplace flexibility. According to the author, workplace flexibility involves creating flexible work arrangements to maximize employee performance, focusing on such interventions as flexible scheduling, results-only work environment, and telecommuting. She suggests that there are six benefits of a flexible work environment: (1) it has a positive impact on recruitment, (2) it raises morale and job satisfaction, (3) it improves productivity, (4) it reduces stress and burnout, (5) it helps cut costs, and (6) it improves retention.
