There are a few types of Flexiwork Arrangements that are available for consideration. Here’s a quick introduction to the more commonly implemented ones.


Core Flex-Choice Employees must be at work at specified ‘core’ times, but other hours are flexi-scheduled by employers
Open Flex-Choice Employees choose the combination of scheduled work hours that total the number of hours required each week
Compressed Work Week Employees complete their weekly work hour requirements in fewer than 5 days
Job Sharing A full time position is split between 2 co-workers by mutual agreement. Benefits are also given in proportion to the number of hours each person works
Part-Time Work Employees take on reduced work hours and pay in a current role
Outcome-Based Schedule (Project basis) Employees are accountable for projects, work assignments, and tasks completed rather than for hours worked or time spent onsite.  



Telecommuting Employees work part of the work week at home (via Telecommunications)
Teleworking Employees conduct all work assignments at home



Short-Term Contract Worker (Less than 1 year) Employees who are hired to take on a full-time role but for short periods of time (usually 1 month – 11th months only)
Freelancers Employees hired on a by-need basis
Project Basis Employees hired to complete a specific project. Contract ends when assignment is completed.
