Posted at 10:56h in Tara's TipsHave you dreamed about a flexible schedule which allows you to miss that rough commute to work? Have you wished for a compressed work week that allows you to work four days instead of five? Or, luxury of luxuries, have you thought about telecommuting from home – even if only part time? If you share these dreams, don’t wait, get ready to negotiate. You can negotiate a flexible work schedule. The advantages of a flexible work schedule for employees are clear and well-documented. So, plan to negotiate a flexible work schedule with your employer in mind. The negotiation is not about you. It’s not about what works best for you and your family. The negotiation is about the advantages to the employer for allowing you to work a flex schedule. With thoughtfulness and a little creativity, you can turn every advantage to you and your family into an advantage for your employer.
