35, the result of the "baby
bust," which occurred when
baby boomers delayed hav-
ing kids while pursuing
careers.
Many corporations are
open to bypassing rigid 9-5
schedules. In an effort to
reduce absenteeism and
boost morale, employers are
providing more flexible
schedules so workers can
better balance the demands
of office and home.
A number of employees of
the General Motors Corp.,
for instance, can set their
own schedules as long as
they put in the required 40
hours. Other companies
offer employees the option
of working longer days,
often for the purpose of pro-
viding three-day weekends.
Another recent option for
working parents is job shar-
ing, where two workers
share an occupation, each
putting in two-and-a-half
days a week. The workers
usually meet at mid-week
to discuss past problems
and future endeavors.
However, job sharing,
labor experts warn, tends to
work best with compatible
employees. In some cases,
bad blood has developed,
making managers wary of
granting future sharing
requests.
A company can't be
expected to provide every
employee with all the bene-
fits. It is clear as corporate
America moves forward
that flexibility and creativi-
ty make good business
sense.
"It's a great comfort for
me knowing I can bring my
child to work if an emer-
N
gency does arise or on
Saturdays when it's more
casual," said Michael
Layne, a single father and
partner with Marx Layne &
Co., a public relations and
marketing
firm
in
Farmington Hills.
"I think it's very impor-
tant for a child to see his
parent(s) at the workplace
) and to understand the cor-
relation between work and
what it takes to pay for the
mortgage, food and toys. I
love my job, but my great-
est joy comes from raising
my child (Josh, 5).
"Innovation also may be
spearheaded by employees.
For example, 290 employees
at the Cincinnati office of
the Internal Revenue
Service recently donated
813 days of their sick leave
and 92 days of vacation
time to a co-worker who
developed leukemia.
