Flex Your Company Muscle: Tomorrow is National Flex Day

Working Mother has declared the third Tuesday of National Work and Family Month, National Flex Day. As the first year noting this momentous occasion, tomorrow is National Flex Day, a day to promote the "power of flexible work arrangements."

The Importance of Flex Time

Earlier this year, Working Mother and Flex Time Lawyers released their annual survey 50 Best Law Firms for Women. One of the overwhelming factors that set the firms on the list apart was the availability of flex time and reduced hours.

If your company has been reluctant to recognize flex time as an option for employees, it's time that it does. A recent study by the Working Mother Research Institute shows the benefits of flex time: 80% of respondents noted increased productivity; 77% of respondents noted increased morale and motivation; and 76% had increased loyalty and commitment to their employer.
