A Flex Employee is someone who works less than 40 hours per week. They may or may not receive full benefits, depending on the organization. The key factor is they are an EMPLOYEE, not a consultant, contractor or gig worker.
An estimated 10-20% of current team members would like to work less than 40 hours per week if the option was offered by their employer. Many would consider leaving if they could have a Flex Employee role at another organization.
There are many talented professionals who want to work. Often their options are not working at all, full-time, or employment in the retail or service industry which doesn't leverage their education or experience and requires them to work a varied schedule.
Be ahead of your competition by offering the true flexibility that many people want and need. Offering Flex Employee roles allows your team members the opportunity to be more engaged with aging parents, childcare, further education or as a pre-retirement option.
