Flexible Working Hours<br />Flexible working hours allow employees to work an agreed number of hours spread over a set period of time to manage their work/non-work commitments <br />An example of this would be working longer hours in exchange for working fewer days<br />
Part-Time Work<br />Part-time work is where employees work fewer hours than full-time employees <br />This allows the employer to arrange jobs according to demands of business<br />Employees can work days that suit their individual commitments, while retaining the same benefits of full time employment but on a pro-rata basis <br />
Part-Time Work (cont...)<br />This also Increases retention of experienced and skilled employees <br />An example of Part-time work is a 4 day working week<br />

Working From Home<br />Working from home is the practice of employees working at home rather than at the employer’s normal place of business.<br />The terms ‘teleworking’ and ‘telecommuting’ are also sometimes used for this practice. <br />This can result in increased productivity of employees because of less time spent socialising and no office politics, greater ability to concentrate due to less noise and fewer interruptions <br />
Working From Home (cont...)<br />For example home-based work may be a regular arrangement, where employees work some or all of their hours at home on an ongoing basis <br />
