Workplace Flexibility

Flexible work arrangements, such as alternative work schedules, telework, and various leave programs, give Federal employees more control over when and where they can accomplish their best work.  They enable employees to meet their responsibilities at and away from work, while also helping organizations attract and retain a committed, effective workforce. 

The Federal Government offers a broad array of workplace flexibility options; some, such as leave programs, are offered as benefits to qualifying employees, while others are offered at the discretion of management.  Good performance management techniques provide the tools that managers and organizations need to ensure that workplace flexibility really works.
