Flexible Working Practices: Pros and Cons
Implementing flexible working practices or flexitime schemes at a workplace can offer opportunities and benefits to employers as well as staff.
Flexible working practices for employees means better work-life balance. It provides them with greater freedom and the flexibility to manage their working schedule to meet family needs and personal circumstances while the employer can still ensure core business hours are properly staffed at all times.

With employer permission they can travel into work outside rush hour traffic, therefore arriving more refreshed.
