Creating flexibility Today's employees value personal time. Because of family needs, a traditional nine-to-five workday  may not work for many people. Therefore,  flextime,  which permits employees to set and control their  own work hours, is one way that organizations are accommodating their employees' needs. Here are  some other options organizations are trying as well:  compressed workweek  is a form of flextime that allows a full-time job to be  completed in less than the standard 40-hour, five-day workweek. Its most common form is  the 4/40 schedule, which gives employees three days off each week. This schedule benefits  the individual through more leisure time and lower commuting costs. The organization  should benefit through lower absenteeism and improved performance. Of course, the  danger in this type of scheduling is the possibility of increased fatigue.
