Everyone loves freedom, especially when we it comes totheir job. A great way to motivate your employees is to give them options to a more flexible work schedule. Some employees feel like the routine of everyday 9-5 can be cumbersome. Each employee is hired for a specific job position and may feel they have little voice in the overall product. If employers give employees options to switch up their work schedule when needed to relieve stress from outside work responsibilities, productivity and work performance will increase.
