Hi Folks - super interesting discussion, and am glad more business are stepping outside of the 9-5 model. Thanks for sharing your insight @alisonmichalk
We have a similarly flexible approach to Quiip - where each person has their own agreed core hours, but they can be done as/when needed during the pay period. Most people regularly work a 4 day week as their core.
Any hours done over core up to full-time are paid in the pay period.
When you do hours over full-time you gain lieu time.
And when you do under your core you use up the lieu time.
What is great from a human point of view, you can balance your life, kids, appointments, getting the sink fixed as needed during the week
–> with the security that you will get paid your core regardless of the hours done in a pay period.
–> and brilliantly you are recognised for all the hours spent working (which is opposite to the 9-5 model).
And what is equally great from a business point of view, when we have loads of great client work to do, we can scale up 20% with our existing people.
We are still on the journey to achieve the asynchronous work methods you discuss, but it is all work in progress.
