Employees often value flexible work schedules, such as work-at-home and telecommuting options, because the work option gives them a more effective work-life balance. Flex-time scheduling also has benefits for employers. In addition to being an effective recruiting and retention tool, letting employees work from home.
A work from home arrangement allows a given employee to start when they want (or need), take breaks when they wish, and work on a schedule that helps them maximize the balance between work and life. Maybe they want to start early to finish up before the kids get home from school, or maybe they like getting in a long work out at lunch time when the mountain biking trail is quiet.
