MASTERING ALTERNATIVE WORK SCHEDULES

The alternative work schedule is introduced as a way to reduce rush-hour traffic, and the ways in which the need for such a schedule may be identified, designed, implemented and evaluated are explained. The need for alternative work schedules to improve transportation can be determined by analyzing the rush-hour traffic conditions and existing work schedules. If work schedules are identified as the cause of the congestion, there are three possible solutions: staggered work hours; flexible work hours; and compressed schedules. The support of higher management is essential for the success of whichever solution is adopted. Steps are suggested for the determination of the feasibility of the alternative schedules. Planning decisions and certain questions that must be answered when considering adoption of any new schedule are discussed. Steps in the implementation and evaluation of the alternatives are also discussed.
