How to sell the idea of flexible hours to your employer, as well as claim accident at work compensation after a serious injury
There are many reasons why working flexible hours might be easier for you that working a typical 9-5 day. You may have a family and need to take time to look after your children as well as work as many hours as you want to.
You might have another job which means that you need to be available to work for that employer as well when you can. If you are ill or injured, flexible hours means that it matters less if you feel too ill or are in too much pain to work a whole work day, as you can make up the hours later.
However, many employers won’t like the idea of this, as it can be difficult to regulate, so here are some ways you can sell the idea to your own employer.
- Work out how it can benefit them. You may have a very understanding employer who simply wants the best out of you, but it is unlikely that they will go for such a radical change to your working hours without good reason. Work out how your flexible hours can help them to get work done when they need it, or even increase your productivity.
- Don’t beg. You are a professional and your boss is your employer, not your teacher. Be an adult about asking for flexible hours, state your case and then go away to let your boss think about it. Begging is only likely to put them off the idea.
- Be prepared to leave. If you really don’t think that the 9-5 schedule will work for you, and that flexible hours are the only way you can continue in your current job, tell your employer this and be prepared to back it up by leaving the company if your employer cannot change your hours for you.
