Extension of the Staff Flexible Work Schedule Pilot Program
At the recommendation of the Staff Affairs Committee and the Department of Human Resources, the University Administration has extended the Staff Flexible Work Schedule Pilot Program. With the objective to incorporate the final recommendations of the pilot program into the revised Telecommuting/Remote Work Policy, Policy 307, the pilot program is being extended one last time through the end of May to align the end of the pilot program with the anticipated completion and implementation of the revised policy.
Staff employees, whose current flexible work schedule arrangement is ending on March 31, and who wish to extend their arrangement through the end of May are encouraged to submit in Workday a new flexible schedule request to cover the period of April 1 – May 31. Employees will be able to submit a flexible work schedule extention or new request effective Friday, April 1.
As a reminder, the pilot guidelines were previously updated to allow staff employees in their introductory period to participate.
Refer to the applicable user guide for instructions on how to submit a flexible schedule request in Workday (see below):
