Considerations when implementing Maxiflex


  • How many Maxiflex schedules can be accommodated at one time?
  • Could all employees in the office/work site utilize this schedule?\
  • Does a supervisor have to be present during the alternate work hours?
  • Is a supervisor currently present for all regular work hours?
  • Can the employee’s set of job duties be accomplished during alternative work hours?
  • Can safety and security needs be met during alternative work hours?
  • Will technology needs be met during alternative work hours?
  • What evidence is needed to determine if this is working or not?

Communication about employee schedule

  • What kind of Maxiflex schedule do they anticipate typically engaging in?
  • How will they communicate their planned working hours to you, co-workers and others?
  • How far in advance do you want to know their schedule?
  • What are expectations for meetings?
  • Will the employee be available in person when necessary?
  • Are there specific hours when he/she must be available?
  • Have they informed others about how and when they can be reached?

Customer Need

  • Will this impact customer services?
  • Will customer safety needs be compromised?
  • Will customer security and protection systems be compromised?

Specific Business Analysis and Review

  • Will this create workload peaks, backlogs, or lulls?
  • Will this affect work flow on specific days of the week?
  • Is the staffing level and/or staff coverage a concern?
  • Will staff with same/similar skills and abilities be available for coverage?
  • Are there financial impacts, such as overtime costs?
