Avoid construction or rush hour with flex work. 

The Environmental Protection Agency says for every gallon of gas burned about 400 grams of C02 is emitted.  So, if you can, flex your schedule to avoid the busiest times of travel, or avoid that construction headache. 

What is flex work?

Flex work is a holistic suite of workplace policies, allowing commuters to avoid travel during peak commute hours.

What are flex work policies? 

  • Telework/Remote Work: allows employees to skip a commute trip and work remotely, either from home or another location.
  • Flexible Scheduling: shift commute trips out of peak commuting hours (aka rush hour) to avoid congestion on roads or transit.
  • Compressed Work Week: allows an employee to work a traditional 35-40 hour workweek in less than the traditional number of workdays.
  • Satellite Office: establishes a work location that is physically separate from an employer’s main office, shortening or simplifying commute trips for a nearby concentration of employees.

What are the benefits of flex work?

Research says overall workplace flexibility is a great employee benefit that improves the work-life balance of employees and reduces turnover.
