Changing Times, New Ways of Working (1997)

Alternative Working Arrangements and Changes in Working Time

As the world of work changes in response to forces like globalization, technological advances and competition, more and more workplaces are turning to new work arrangements such as flextime, job sharing and part-time work. This report provides analysis of the impact, costs and benefits of alternative approaches to work arrangements and working time. It establishes an important link between the changes occurring in the labour market and business environment, and specific attempts to control change in the workplace. It sketches the elements of a framework for developing successful new work arrangements in the workplace, and also highlights gaps in the current knowledge base, identifying areas where more research is needed in order to understand the longer term implications of these arrangements.
