Flex time: the work perk employees can’t get enough of
Today’s post is brought to you by Eugene Feygin, an SEO expert & the founder of a Chicago digital marketing agency Raw SEO.
You can talk about raises and benefits and bigger offices when it comes to employment packages, but there’s something that everyone wants: flex time. People want to work where they want to work, when they want to work, as long as they get their work done.
For all the conventional arguments against flex time, it seems none of them hold water. People don’t shirk out on their duties. They don’t experience more stress — the complete opposite is true. And they don’t leave their jobs — flex time translates into retention.
In fact, almost 40 percent of employees would love to have flex schedules be a part of their benefits package, particularly in the summer — even if that just includes leaving early on Fridays.
And offering flex time, in any form, is a way for companies to distinguish themselves against the competition. So what should you know about this crucial benefit? This graphic explains it.
