Alternative Work Arrangements

Flex-time allows individuals some flexibility in choosing the time, but not the number of their working hours. Flex-time reduces stress by avoiding peak traffic times, reduces traffic congestion and helps improve the region’s air quality by shorter commute times.

A compressed work week is a scheduling of work hours that has employees working longer hours each day, balanced by having employees working fewer days each week. Compressed work week also reduces peak period driving, reduces commuting time and costs, and improves our air quality be reducing the number of vehicles commuting to work.

Teleworking allows employees to work at home, or at a satellite work center near home. Teleworking reduces traffic congestion and can improve our air quality. Employers also benefit from offering alternative work arrangements at their worksite.

If your company does not have an alternative work arrangement in place but would like some more information CAP/ADID is happy to come in and meet with you.
