Flex Time: Workers start and end their days on flexible schedules-for example, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. instead of 9 to 5-within limits set by management.

Work sharing: To avoid layoffs, an organization’s work force might share the available work.

Job-Sharing: Two people share the responsibilities, salary, and benefits of one full-time job.

Permanent Part-Time: The employee works fewer hours, but enjoys the same job security and benefits as a full-time employee.

Compressed Work Week: Employees work longer hours for fewer days.
