Need Advice for Negotiating Flex Schedule

Jenelle - posted on 09/15/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




I'm currently working Tues and Thurs from home, but its temporary. I'd like to make it permanent but this is very unusual in the group I work in. I also don't have any other parents in my group, so empathy is lacking. I've worked at the company for many years and have a good reputation. Just need help proving that this schedule can work on a permanent basis.

Hi Janelle,

If it's only temporary and you want P/T permanently ask your boss. In this economy most employers are looking for ways to cut back and save money. If there has to be a full-time employee suggest you could train a new employee hired in at entry-level wages, allowing you keep your P/T position in tact.

I've hired and fired employees and now run my own preschool, I would love for someone to offer me a situation like the one presented above. If you offer a solution, not just a problem you'll be more likely to get what you want - a win-win!

God bless,
