More Employers Adopting Flexible Arrangements in 2009

We all know the hiring outlook for the New Year is down from what it was going into 2008, so I'm choosing to focus on the positives this New Year's Eve day. CareerBuilder's Annual Job Survey found that 31 percent of employers anticipate offering workers more flexible work arrangements in 2009. Here is the breakdown of how many employers plan on expanding their policies.

  • Alternate schedules (come in early and leave early or come in later and leave later): 70 percent
  • Telecommuting options: 48 percent
  • Compressed workweeks - work the same hours, but in fewer days: 40 percent
  • Summer hours: 19 percent
  • Job sharing: 13 percent
  • Sabbaticals: 7 percent

I'm going to have to look into job sharing to learn more about it, but the others seem pretty sweet to me.

i would love if my company were more flexible about things, but i can't imagine that things will change in 2009. we always have summer flex days - but i'm not sure if we'll get more or less this year. they usually don't announce it too early. as for the flexible hours/work week - i would love that seeing as how i always work 40 hours in less than 5 days - but that's not going to change - i can't imagine it here.
