Flexible working hour arrangements in Brazil

Autores

Resumo

This paper bases on a survey applied to 315 human resources top managers from Brazilian firms regarding flexible working hour arrangements practices. I discuss how flexible arrangements occur in countries with regulatory, voluntarist or hybrid industrial relations systems (Brazil, Europe, USA and Asia). The research shows that flexible arrangements happen mainly as an initiative of managers while collective bargaining between unions and employees hold a third of these initiatives. Half of the arrangements exchanged overtime payment for time-off and 20% adopted home office and telecommuting; 76.8% of the companies had greater job satisfaction, productivity and retention of professionals.
