To best understand the concept of flexible working arrangement in the perspective of business and companies, there is a need understand the term “flexibility”. First, flexibility refers to the intentional rescheduling of working hours in such a manner that flexes the breaks and shift hours. The second definition of flexibility refers to the number and amount of hours spent working, which may refer to part-time working or creation of job shares. The third definition may refer to the place of work a worker chooses to work from. Therefore, the term “Flexibility Working Arrangement” may refer to either the three ideas of offering flexibility to workers (Davis 2006, p. 36-67). Nonetheless, when a company or organization decides to offer a flexibility package to its employees, it intends to give the opportune to operate under an unregulated system. The success of this system depends on a number of factors that the human resources team needs to address. The flexibility of a working system and the success of such a system depend on the understanding and adoption of the company’s vision by the employees being offered such an opportunity.
