I think it was helpful for some of them And may have added to retention success.

    But in the end, there was probably only 2-3 hour daily difference in work hours among employees. I required that they set a predictable schedule, they couldn’t work a different schedule every day or even weekly.

    No one was working from home.
    My office is open 8-5 and you’re expected to work those hours. No exceptions. Customer facing.

    Are they taking applications for old people like me, who would be able to work one day a week, doing menial tasks? I know I'd be genial & affable & cooperative, provided I didn't have to take too much guff, from other frustrated employees looking for a target to vent their rage & frustration, there. Let me know when I can start.
