Phil Uglow looks into the data to find out if companies should implement flextime.
Spoiler alert – “it depends”.
1./ “Should we implement flextime?” is the wrong question. Instead ask, “what do we need to do to improve performance?”
2./ Move operational decisions to the front line.
3./ Monitor actions and costs.
Only then can you decide whether or not to implement flextime.
