Flexible Working Arrangements: Overview
The University of Vermont seeks to be responsive to important work/life changes:
- Couples with children often both work outside the home
- Many employees are single parents
- Many employees are involved in care for their aging parents and relatives
- Many employees are developing their skills and abilities by pursuing continuing education opportunities
In a number of instances, UVM has used flexible working arrangements to attract and retain employees by providing a work environment that is responsive to the needs of staff with family pressures and/or education requirements. Research shows that higher productivity and energy can sometimes result by offering such flexibility.
The information on Flexible Working Arrangements is presented in a number of individual sections:
- Flexible Working Arrangements: General Principles
- Flexible Working Arrangements: Options
- Flexible Working Arrangements: Guidelines for Staff
- Flexible Working Arrangements: Guidelines for Supervisors and Managers
- Flexible Working Arrangements: Request Form
Note: The flexible working arrangement principles and guidelines expressed on this website have primary application to non-represented staff. Staff who are represented by a bargaining unit should see their collective bargaining agreement for information about flexible working arrangements.
