Flexible Work Options

At Duke, we understand the increasing demands that staff members face in their personal and work lives and recognize that their career is just one of the many aspects of their life. Finding ways to accommodate these demands can help provide an atmosphere where we can thrive personally and professionally.

There are many instances of flexible work arrangements at Duke today. Supervisors and staff have worked together to find creative ways of meeting business needs while providing greater flexibility than traditional work arrangements. Duke has now developed formal guidelines to help support supervisors and employees in establishing these arrangements.

Flexible work options offer alternative approaches to getting work done through non-traditional work hours, locations, and/or job structures. They offer creative approaches for completing work while promoting balance between work and personal commitments and can result in a more positive and productive work environment.
