Flexible Work Options within the Organisational System
Albion, Majella J.; Chee, Munli
Australian Journal of Career Development, v15 n2 p42-52 Win 2006
The availability of flexible work options provides an opportunity for individuals to shape their careers in order to optimise their work and life goals. This study takes a systems theory approach to examine how the use of flexible work options influences relationships and interactions in the workplace. The "Flexible Work Options Questionnaire" (Albion, 2004) and the "Voice Climate Survey" (Langford, 2002) were administered online to 108 employees (70 females, 38 males) from a chartered accounting firm in Australia. Results suggest positive outcomes for organisations providing support for the use of flexible work options for employees wanting to make career choices that balance the demands of work and non-work roles.
