What could flexible work look like?
Find greater satisfaction in work and life by working remotely or adjusting your schedule.
In HR, we encourage supervisors and employees to work together to find creative ways of meeting the needs of the university while providing greater flexibility than traditional work arrangements.
We know flexibility when possible helps everyone thrive at work and outside of it. That's why work-life sensitivity is one of our university's values.
Flexible work options
What's possible in your position? The strategies — remote work, adjusted hours, compressed work week, reduced hours or flex time — that are possible for your specific position should be discussed with your supervisor.
Work can take place off-site for all or part of the workweek on a regular basis. Working from a home office one or two days per week is a common arrangement.
Adjust your hours
Shift your regular schedule an hour early or later, or compress your work week into four 10-hour days. The flexibility is there for you to define with your supervisor.
Reduce your hours
In most cases, reducing hours involves a pro-rated salary and benefits. Several options are available.
For occasional appointments, university policy allows you to use flex time as long as you make up the time you missed within the same week. Coordinate with your supervisor, but there's no need to complete a proposal for flex time.
Child care during COVID-19
Because of limits on schools and day cares related to COVID-19, we understand you may have child care responsibilities while working.
What happens after submitting a proposal?
Your proposal will be submitted to your supervisor and the HR Work-Life manager will be copied for reference only. Your supervisor has the option to approve, request revisions or deny.Read more
