Success Depends on Everyone
Doing His or Her Part – and
Doing it Well



"The user-friendly tools helped
educate our employees and
managers on making the flex
request process work for our
people and our business."

-- Manager, Retail



"The form and advice helped me
approach my request with both my
and the business’s needs in mind.
My supervisor and I collaborated
on a solution that worked well."


– Employee, Accounting



Are Employees Ready?

What does the FFWO say you can ask for?
What schedule fits with your job?
Do you know how to write a request?
Have you thought about how your new
schedule could be good for the business?



Are Managers Prepared?

Are you ready to decide requests?
Can you ask or offer more than required?
Are the business reasons to say “no” clear?
How do you keep the needs of
the business in focus?



Will Collaboration Happen?

A flexible workplace depends on ongoing
collaboration. Is everyone ready to let go of
“our way or the highway” assumptions?
Can more and better communication
mark the process?
