Flextime is a great benefit for employees whose companies offer it. Flextime allows an employee to vary their work schedule based on their needs. Usually the employee is required to work a certain number of hours at set times each day. For example the regular shift for employees may start at 7am but employees who have flextime could start anytime between 5 am and 9 am. This allows employees to meet the needs of their families and still meet the needs of the business.
