Poll: Workers Say Flexible Schedule Would Make them More Productive

Asked in a recent poll to name the one benefit program that would make them more productive on the job, an overwhelming majority of respondents (63 percent) cited a "flexible work schedule." According to pollsters at LifeCare® Inc., a provider of services in the work/life industry, the second most popular response was "enhanced health and wellness program" (10 percent).

LifeCare CEO Peter G. Burki noted that even though flexible schedules were the clear crowd favorite, such schedules don't work for every organization due to the nature of their business. In these cases, employers should look to the other items mentioned in the poll to enhance their attraction and retention strategies, he said.

"Enhanced wellness programs, enhanced child and elder care programs, and stress management programs all offer employers a win-win proposition," Burki said. "They not only help employees become more focused and productive on the job but they also reduce an organization's medical expenses and other productivity losses related to these issues."
