When possible, flexible work arrangements can help you balance work and personal commitments with alternatives to the traditional workday, the standard workweek or the traditional workplace. Our formal Flex Work Program offers five possible flex work options: flex place (remote working), flex time, compressed schedules, reduced schedules or job-sharing.
