Promote possibilities for flexible work hours, and telecommuting

by University Communication | September 2, 2010

The University finalized new policies and clarified existing practices with regard to employment work hours and telecommuting. The Chancellor encouraged supervisors and managers to explore such options on a case-by-case basis.

Employee suggestions were the basis for two dozen "Quick Fix" initiatives implemented during Chancellor Harden's first year. Each of the 100 or so suggestions was discussed at the cabinet level and assigned to a division leader and planning team for followup. Some suggestions turned out to be measures already in place, some involved only minor tweaks to existing practice, and others were determined not to be "quick fixes" at all because of cost, complexity or time horizon. Several projects not yet initiated (and therefore not listed here) remain under consideration.
