How to Request a Flexible Work Schedule

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of arrangements.For instance, "Tanya"*is the mother of two elementary school-age children. During the school year she works shorter work days on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, while working longer days on Mondays and Fridays. Meanwhile, "Rebecca" works from home two days per week. I too have a flexible work schedule that I started when I returned from maternity leave last winter; I work from h0me every Wednesday.

 

So how do you go about convincing your boss you won't lose productivity if you work a flexible schedule? You need to do your homework.  Read more here: www.bossmomonline.com
