3 steps to your flexitime model with XIMES...                                                                                                                                          

1. Discussion of the requirements 

  • Which requirements of your customers have to be considered?

  • Analysis: How are the main business activities spread over a day, a week and also over a longer period of time?

  • Are there particularly critical processes that trigger special requirements for staffing?

  • Which concerns are important to your employees? Are there concrete wishes of the employees?

  • How is the current working time and how does it fit in with the business model?

  • What concrete scope for design can be derived from all these inputs? 

2. Rules and regulations 

  • Legal requirements: What must a specific flexitime agreement contain? ... such as flexitime framework, flexitime period, fictitious normal working time, etc.

  • Which control mechanisms should be implemented to secure the operational processes (e.g. core time, functional time)?

  • Building up time credits and forms/agreements for compensation 

  • Should special rules for controlling working time accounts be agreed (e.g. "traffic light" account)?

  • How can overtime hours be clearly regulated?

3. Implementation 

  • Clarification of the administrative processes and, if necessary, the special requirements for time management

  • If necessary, provide for transfer rules from previous systems (e.g. transfer of saved time credits).

  • Comprehensive information for all employees and managers

  • Internal training of all employees who are responsible for time accounting

  • Remember to review and evaluate after a few months in order to correct possible weaknesses in the regulatory framework.

    Things to know about flexitime

    Flexitime opportunities for employees

    • Individual design possibilities

    • Less stress due to fixed time schedules

    • Better reconciliation of professional and private interests

    • More personal responsibility for your own working time organisation

    • Possibilities for a better organisation of leisure time (time compensation)

    Flexitime opportunities for employers

    • Meaningful design options are delegated to the employees 

    • Daily and weekly working times can be well aligned with operational requirements 

    • Longer (freely selectable) periods to compensate for working hours 

    • Legally secure framework for calculation

    Flexitime needs a mature culture    

    Flexitime works well if managers and employees communicate well with each other and seek a fair balance of interests. 

    Experienced and well-informed employees know the operational requirements and proactively coordinate their personal time management within their team. A transparent and simple set of rules ensures that there is sufficient room for individual concerns and interests. 

    Managers only intervene in the organisation of working hours to an absolutely unavoidable extent and trust in the sense of responsibility of their employees.

          • Is there sufficient experience and know-how in your organization with such projects?

          • Can the issue possibly trigger tensions and conflicts?

          • Does a good balance of interests possibly require external moderation?
