Flexible Work

The university recognizes the growing demands on faculty and staff and the increasing challenge of finding new and better ways to serve customers and meet university goals. Workplace flexibility provides a way to successfully manage people, time, space, and workload. The university supports flexible work arrangements to achieve a highly productive work environment that enables faculty and staff to balance work and personal needs, while providing workforce predictability and stability.

Flexible Work Tools
When considering asking or approving a flexible work arrangement there are many things to take into consideration. Here are some tools to help evaluate which kind of flexible work arrangement is best suited for you and the business unit or college as these types of schedules MUST work for both the requestor and Ohio State University.

For more information about Flexible Work Arrangements or with questions about the upcoming 2011 policy please contact Katie Purcell, Work Life Manager at purcell.59@osu.edu or 292-0583.
