Carleton recognizes that the implementation of FlexWork (flexible work) arrangements can often optimize the needs of the College and our staff while maintaining our workplace culture.
Carleton supports FlexWork arrangements that:
- help employees accomplish their work while promoting employee wellbeing.
- promote staff engagement and retention, and the overall sense of personal empowerment.
The availability of FlexWork arrangements varies by department, division, and position based on business and operational needs. The approval, denial, or revocation of a FlexWork request is at the College’s discretion.
Types of FlexWork Arrangements Available
Flextime (flexible scheduling)
This is an arrangement that provides flexibility when establishing an employee’s work schedule. Under a flextime agreement, employees are required to work during the department’s established standard core hours (i.e. 9:00am to 2:00pm), but may work the remaining hours at any point during the day. Flextime does not reduce the total number of hours worked in a given workweek.
This is an arrangement that allows two or more employees to combine and share the responsibilities assigned to their roles, allowing for cross coverage and more individual flexibility. Job sharing does not alter an employee’s FTE and only similarly graded roles can be shared.
This is an arrangement that allows eligible staff members who have demonstrated the ability to perform productively to split their time working both on-campus and from a remote location. Hybrid arrangements may be situational, limited to specific time periods (academic breaks, during off-peak periods, etc.) or year-round.
This is an arrangement that allows eligible staff members who have demonstrated the ability to perform productively to work from a remote location. Remote work employees will likely be required to periodically attend meetings or events on campus.
