Flextime: A Modified Work Force Scheduling Technique for Selected Headquarters Air Force Logistics Command Organizations.
Kimzey, Reed T.; Prince, Samuel M. O.
The thesis discusses the advantages and disadvantages of one work force scheduling technique--flextime. The authors were interested in determining if a flextime schedule could be put into effect in a governmental organization such as Headquarters Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC). The study objectives were to determine the feasibility, desirability, and specific advantages and disadvantages of putting flextime into effect in selected AFLC organizations. To satisfy objectives, the authors obtained sample data from three sources: an opinion survey for AFLC employees, a structured interview procedure for AFLC managers, and authoritative AFLC leave absence records. From these data, the authors were able to provide statistical and subjective answers to their research questions. The study concluded that flextime would be desirable in terms of socioeconomic, behavioral, attitudinal, productivity, and job satisfaction factors. However, it is not feasible to put flextime into effect at this time because of the legal restrictions of Title 5, U. S. Code, and negotiated union agreements. (NTIS)
