Love Your Job? Consider These Four Reasons Why You Might Want to Consider an Opportunity That Lets You Work with Flex Scheduling

Flex scheduling has been shown to increase productivity and job satisfaction while saving time and money. Employees with flex scheduling tend to report greater job satisfaction and remain with their company longer. These are a few reasons why you may want to find a role that offers flex scheduling.

More Favorable Commute

Flex scheduling offers a preferred commute time. Avoiding rush hour traffic results in a shorter amount of driving, lower gas consumption, and reduced stress. Also, taking public transportation may mean less jockeying for a seat. If you can work remotely, you can save even more time and money by avoiding the commute altogether.

Greater Work-Life Balance

Flex scheduling increases work-life balance. Having more time to meet family needs, personal obligations, and life responsibilities adds convenience to your day. For instance, you could participate in a parent-teacher conference during the day, take a yoga class, or be home when the washing machine repair worker comes. Also, you can work when you feel most productive, such as in the morning or during the afternoon, and get more done.

Increased Development Opportunities

Flex scheduling offers more opportunities for professional development. Being able to grow and learn on the job is an important part of career growth. You may take classes related to your field or earn a certificate or degree that could help you get promoted.

Better Health

Flex scheduling positively impacts your physical and mental health and well-being. For instance, being able to set your own schedule reduces your stress level. You are able to take care of personal responsibilities when needed rather than worry about finding time to fit them all in after work. Also, having a less stressful commute or being able to work remotely reduces blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease or stroke, and blood sugar levels, which can lead to diabetes. Additionally, being able to take a fitness class, work out, go for a walk/run, or participate in other physical activity during the day increases relaxation. Further, taking time away from the office to meditate, practice Reiki, or participate in another activity to clear your mind helps you make better decisions and accomplish more tasks.
