Job sharing allows young parents to work half-time at Atlanta firm

Recruiters and account managers can work half-time at Matrix Resources, an IT staffing firm in Atlanta. The organization created job-sharing teams in 2000, allowing two employees to share one job so each can work half-time.

Because the employees are paid commissions only, the arrangement doesn’t cost the organization anything, said spokesman Bob Korch. Of the company’s 250 employees, 16 split their jobs.

“We know we would have lost a lot of employees who had young families if they didn’t have the opportunity to job-share,” said HR Director Sandy Jess. Most job-sharing employees work slightly more than 20 hours a week and earn commissions based on sales.

Voluntary turnover at the company was 12% last year.
