What percent of companies offer some form of flextime?

Only 44%.

Is flextime important? Along with listing at as the most valued employee benefit, Gallup says that:

  • Employees would trade some of their salary for flextime.
  • 63% of millennials would change jobs for flextime.
  • 53% of all employees say work-life balance and wellbeing is ‘very important’ when considering whether to take a job

I know I would – and do – trade money for flextime. I work for myself so flextime is easier to negotiate. And adding up all my working years I’ve probably passed up on multiple millions of dollars for flextime – that’s how important it is to me. 

If you don’t offer your people flextime, you’d better start or they’ll find somewhere that does.

And if you’re making a good salary but are still not as happy as you want to be, try negotiating to increase your flextime. At the very least take all those personal days that are piling up.
