Workplace flexibility considers how, when and where people do their best work. There are a diverse range of needs employee face both personally and professionally. The University supports the general concept of remote/hybrid work arrangements and flexible scheduling, as defined by the Future of Work @ Iowa Report, providing staff the potential to balance work and personal commitments, and perform at their highest level. Workplace flexibility may positively impact retention efforts, work-life fit, workloads, staff commitment, productivity, and the overall work culture. 

Getting Started: 

  1. Employee proposes a remote/hybrid work arrangement or flexible schedule. A verbal conversation is recommended as best practice to initiate and discuss the details of the arrangement. See Workplace Flexibility: Best Practices for Staff for details to consider when negotiating a work arrangement. 

  1. Supervisor receives & considers alignment of proposed work arrangement with departmental needs and guidance. See: Workplace Flexibility: Best Practices for Supervisors. 

  1. Once work arrangement details are agreed upon, employee visits self-service to complete Work Arrangement application. Please see: Work Arrangement Application User Guide for additional guidance.

    The Work Arrangement Application will be live in employee self-service on June 1, 2021
