Part-Time Work and Job Sharing
Throughout the working life of any employee, different stages bring different responsibilities and demands at and outside of work. Child care or elder care arrangements may call for a more flexible schedule. Consider options such as part-time work and job sharing to create career flexibility and retain a trained, reliable staff.
For employees who have child care and/or elder care responsibilities, as well as those interested in phased retirement, job sharing and other part-time arrangements can be very attractive alternatives. They enable employees to continue their engagement with work, contribute to the family income, and progress in their careers. Your practice will benefit from retaining talented, experienced and loyal staff.
