In November 2008, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) conducted the
SHRM 2008 Workplace Flexibility Survey. The purpose of the survey was to identify
1) the prevalence and types of flexible work arrangements (FWAs) that employers offer
2) employee utilization of FWAs
3) employers that collect metrics/analytics on FWAs
4) successful FWAs, as well as success factors
5) the impact of FWAs on both employees and employers
6) the challenges associated with FWAs.
