The University of North Texas endeavors to foster a work environment that maximizes productivity and flexibility for supervisors and staff. The university allows flexible work arrangements, at the discretion of supervisors, to enable employees to serve customers, meet institutional and departmental goals, and balance professional and personal responsibilities. Flexible work arrangements may be implemented as a means of achieving administrative efficiency, improving productivity and job performance, supporting business continuity plans, and supporting the hiring and retention of a highly competent workforce through work/life balance. A flexible work arrangement is a privilege and not a right. The availability of flexible work arrangements is not intended to change university office hours or a department’s regular hours of operation, nor does it alter the responsibility or diminish the authority of supervisors to establish and adjust work schedules.
