Getting around Calgary: work options

Have you thought about getting around Calgary by not getting around at all? Flexible work options can reduce commute times, minimize traffic congestion on our roadways and limit environmental emissions.

Some companies offer flexible work options like telework or compressed work week programs that reduce the amount of work days without reducing hours worked. These work options not only benefit all Calgarians by reducing congestion during peak commute times but employers and employees find that job satisfaction and employee retention is higher while the cost of maintaining office space is lower.

Whether you would like to work fewer days in the week, have a faster commute time or attract and retain top talent by adding flexible work options to your employment offer or lower the cost of office space, talk to your employer or employees about incorporating flexible work options into your human resources and business plans. There are programs such as WORKshift and links to tools and sample programs to help you get started.
