Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

The Americans with Disabilities Act and the most recent clean air legislation requiring employee trip reduction programs have confounded many a manager. Compliance with the mandates is often quite difficult, as the controlling infrastructure was built in another time with a different set of social criteria. Kugelmass's work is based on his experience with a task force charged with implementing a flexible work program at the University of California, Davis. His title serves as a good introduction and how-to on the subject of flexible work arrangements. Writing from a managerial viewpoint, the author makes a strong case for flexible working arrangements and provides some guidance for starting a flex-time program. Serious sociologists and organizational behaviorists will most likely be disappointed, but the practicing manager will find the book of some value.

From Booklist

The promise of telecommuting, work at home or at a remote location using a computer or other telecommunications technology, has been around for more than a decade, but it has only barely begun to be fulfilled. Furthermore, most of the literature touting that promise has targeted the potential telecommuter, who has never been in a position to make the necessary changes in management policy and working arrangements. Kugelmass helped initiate and implement one of the largest flexible work policies in California at the University of California, Davis, and this book grew out of his experiences there. He explains the benefits and challenges of flexible working arrangements and discusses how to select and manage flexible workers. Most of his book addresses such practical considerations as inaugurating a workplace discussion of the issues, choosing work centers, assigning supervisors, budgeting and funding, setting policies, and training. This guide will be of value to any organization--and its employees--considering such work arrangements. David Rouse
