KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Organisation Development Consultant Ilsa DuVerney has applauded the government’s move towards implementing flexi-work week arrangements.

A bill seeking to introduce a flexible work week is to be tabled in Parliament on Tuesday.

Speaking on Independent talk on Power106 FM this morning DuVerney stressed that while the arrangements create opportunities for job creation and an increase in productivity levels, they must be carefully thought out before implemented.

She also stressed that a cost-benefit analysis must be done by employers and employees before changes take place.

DuVerney pointed out that flexi-work week arrangements will also allow employers to better assign duties to the best person fit for a particular job, especially as it relates to preferred work hours.

This she said has the potential to increase staff morale, self-empowerment of employees and improve productivity.

DuVerney said leadership is critical for the success of flexi-work week plans.

DuVerney is the Chief Executive Officer of the Caribbean Center for Organisation Development Excellence Limited.
