The ability to work according to individual productivity rhythms lets employees accomplish more in less time. Increasing efficiency leads to greater productivity.
For instance, some employees are better able to focus on details and think creatively during the early morning hours. These employees are not interrupted by emails and instant messages. Other employees may be more productive during the late-night hours. These employees have fewer distractions and enjoy working from home.
Greater Job Satisfaction
Flexible schedules let employees begin and end work at convenient times. They can avoid rush hour when commuting to and from the office.
Arriving at or leaving the office outside of rush hour decreases stress. Lower stress levels help employees remain focused and solve problems. This promotes job satisfaction.
Companies that offer flexible schedules have greater trust among their employees. The employees know they are valued team members and perform accordingly.
Employees who feel respected at work typically remain with the company long-term. This increases retention rates.
