Workplace Flexibility Toolkit

The U.S. Department of Labor has launched its online Workplace Flexibility Toolkit to provide employees, job seekers, employers, policymakers and researchers with information, resources and a unique approach to workplace flexibility. Workplace flexibility policies and practices typically focus on when and where work is done. The toolkit adds a new dimension -- an emphasis on flexibility around job tasks and what work is done.
 
Workplace flexibility is a Universal Strategy that can meet the needs of employers and their employees, which includes when, where, and how work is done. Essentially, flexibility enables both individual and business needs to be met through making changes to the time (when), location (where), and manner (how) in which an employee works. Flexibility should be mutually beneficial to both the employer and employee and result in superior outcomes.
ODEP and the Women's Bureau have developed this unique Workplace Flexibility Toolkit to provide useful valuable information to employees, employers, policymakers, and researchers related to time and place, but also around task, a unique workplace flexibility strategy related to ODEP's Customized Employment research-based data. The Toolkit provides case studies, fact and tip sheets, issue briefs, reports, articles, websites, other toolkits, and frequently-asked questions.
Use the links to narrow the number of resources that are relevant to what you need. Each link includes the number of resources available.
In this Toolkit, the terms Workplace Flexibility, Flexible Work Arrangements, Work-Life Balance, and Flexible Workplace Options are used interchangeably to describe all types of workplace flexibility.
There are currently 172 resources in the toolkit.  Click here to learn more.
