Bentley understands that employees need to balance many competing demands in their lives and that some employees may desire and benefit from workplace flexibility. Workplace flexibility can take many forms including: working a compressed schedule, having an alternate work schedule other than the university’s normal schedule, working remotely, or hybrid schedules. Other types of flexibility may also exist depending on the employee’s and the department’s needs.
Our goal is to ensure that we deliver all services in line with the university’s on-campus mission while providing flexibility to employees where possible. Managers and employees are encouraged to engage in an open dialogue about workplace flexibility, and should use the guide below to inform the discussion.
