Whether you are an employee or a supervisor, the first step is to review the policies, procedures, and agreements associated with Flexible Work. The next step is to develop a proposal and discuss it with your supervisor and/or department head.

During the discussion, ascertain whether the arrangement is feasible and how it would impact the department. Bear in mind that sometimes it may be best to start with a modest proposal and then move to a more significant change after assessing its impact.

Once an agreement has been reached between the employee and supervisor, all appropriate paperwork (including necessary signatures) needs to be complete.
