Formal flexitime programs not common
October 25, 2005
Although more than 1 in 4 full-time wage and salary workers can work a flexible schedule, only about 1 in 10 are enrolled in a formal, employer-sponsored flexitime program.
In May 2004, 10.7 percent of all full-time wage and salary workers were enrolled in a formal flexitime program.
Workers in management, professional, and related occupations were among the most likely to have a formal flexitime program (14.2 percent). Those in production, transportation, and material moving occupations were the least likely to have such a program (5.9 percent).
These data are a product of the May 2004 supplement to the Current Population Survey. Learn more about flexible work schedules in "Workers on Flexible and Shift Schedules in May 2004," USDL news release 05-1198.
