Your persistence and patience has saved a lot of un-necessary shuffling of equipment, IT staff time and unrealized (future) gains of payroll staff time. It’s my opinion that companies which were able to survive the recent economic issues and flourish, can attribute much of their survival to excellent customer service like yours.

The traditional 9-to-5 work week—also known as a fixed working schedule—is increasingly being replaced with flexible work schedules, in which employees don’t have to adhere to set work hours. The benefits of a flexible work schedule include:
1. Increased productivity. Studies show that flexible workers are often more productive than those working fixed schedules.
2. Enhanced attractiveness to job prospects. According to The 2016 Deloitte Millennial Survey, a flexible schedule follows only salary and financial benefits as the leading factors considered when evaluating job opportunities.
3. Happier and healthier employees. A 2016 study published in American Sociological Review revealed employees who were given more control over their workdays reported lower stress, less burnout, and increased job satisfaction.
When you take all of this into consideration, it’s easy to see why more companies are offering their employees flexible work schedules.
