UC Santa Barbara recognizes the importance of thoughtfully creating work-life harmony, which may include flexibility in one’s workweek through a Flexible Work Arrangement. Flexible Work Arrangements (FWA) have a high potential for enhancing employee performance, have been shown to decrease employee stress, and increase employee engagement and productivity. Although not every position is suitable for these arrangements, flexibility can be customized to work for the individual, the supervisor, and the department in many ways. Flexible Work Arrangements may include flextime, compressed workweeks, remote or hybrid schedules, and reduced time appointments (ERIT).
