Our flextime and telework policies permit our employees to enjoy a flexible work schedule as well as telework benefits. We were able to implement both because we had developed a culture of communication across multiple technologies (Slack, Google, Confluence, Trello and other collaborative tools), and because these policies were enacted with the requirement that both sides be adaptable in order to make sure that both Casebook PBC and our employees could benefit from such flexibility.
Since we understand that some companies were not familiar with flexible schedule or remote work cultures prior to the current public health issue, we wanted to share our policies.
These approaches have enabled Casebook PBC to provide our employees with better manage work/life balance and accomplish their work in a manner that minimizes certain stressors and distractions. While the specific requirements and permissions that we’ve embraced might not work for every company, we hope that they can provide some ideas about what to consider as companies design their own internal protocols.
In addition to the Flextime and Telework Policies, we also have a a business continuity plan readily available.
This plan complements our existing policies and builds off of our flexible work culture to enable our company to stay fully functional during a range of emergencies and other issues. We’ve decided to share this document as well, to show how our business communicates how our employees should respond in a number of situations impacting normal operations, in order to maintain a continuity of business functions and critical service delivery to our customers.
