Workplace Flexibility at UNH
In 2011 UNH established a Flexible Work Arrangements Task Force to explore flexible work schedule policies and practices in an effort to have them better align with the University's strategic planning goals, help employees sustain work/life balance, and save energy and resources, among other benefits.
Building on the work of the Task Force, and in collaboration with many key stake holders, Human Resources has been developing materials and resources dedicated to bringing more clarity and consistency to flex work arrangements. Employees and supervisors now have a resource which provides the guidance and documentation to help craft a new flexible work arrangement or document an existing arrangement. Properly documenting flexible work arrangements provides an opportunity to clarify and clearly communicate the expectations of supervisors and employees. The documentation for this program can now be accessed online at: www.unh.edu/hr/workplace-flexibility.
Presentations on this process regarding eligibility, types of flex work arrangements, challenges and considerations, how to initiate a request and an overview of the approval process for supervisors can be delivered by HR Partners within their areas as requested or needed.
If you have any immediate questions about this program or the scheduled forums, please contact your HR Partner or Human Resources at 862-0547.
