Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs) are policies and practices designed to strengthen the work-life balance of employees and to maximise their productivity.
People are increasingly looking for a work environment that offers them flexibility. Finding a good balance between work and other life commitments-such as family responsibilities, studies or outside interests-enables employees to flourish inside and away from the workplace. For employers, flexible work arrangements provide greater freedom in terms of business operating hours; importantly, they also increase retention of experienced staff who might otherwise have been lost to the organisation.
