While 1 of 4 employees works for an employer who allows job sharing and 16 percent say their employers allow them to work at home, nearly two thirds of all employees want more flexibility in their work schedules.

More time off to meet family needs, flex time, and job sharing are desired by 2 of 3 working families, according to a Workplace Pulse survey.
