However, only 37% of those surveyed report they have a formal, written philosophy or policy to support employee flexibility options.
By far, the most prevalent flexibility programs offered are telework days on an ad-hoc basis, flex time and part-time employment.
Not all employees are eligible for those flexible work arrangements. Only about 60% of those surveyed report that all their employees have access to flex benefits.
In 67% of organizations, the decision to allow employees to use flexible work arrangements is left up to individual managers.
