Flexibility isn’t a program at accounting firm Jefferson Wells International, says Nadine Guirl, vice president of HR. It’s part of the company’s “fundamental structure.”
Thirty percent of the company’s 2,674 employees work flexible schedules, project by project. About 20 percent are what Guirl calls “project-plus employees.” They work an average of 30 hours a week with benefits. Another 10 percent are project-by-project employees who work fewer than 20 hours a week without benefits.
Though most employees choose their schedules when they join the company, some switch to more or fewer hours as their need for family time changes, Guirl says.
The Brookfield, Wis.-based company has 43 U.S. and European offices, so employees rarely have to travel long distances to meet clients, a perk that leaves them less stressed, Guirl says.
