Minister of Finance and Planning Dr Peter Phillips says the Government has prepared a White Paper on Flexible Work Arrangements as it intensifies its thrust to boost the country’s productivity levels.
Phillips says the document will be made available for public consideration.
A flexible work arrangement or flexi-week is characterised by a variable work schedule which allows the worker and employer the opportunity to arrange the traditional 40-hour work week as it best suits their needs.
The finance minister says workers and employers stand to benefit greatly from the introduction of flexi-week as it will boost productivity and promote cost effectiveness within companies.
Phillips was speaking at a Labour Market Forum at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston recently.
