What is a Temporary Job Share Program?
A temporary job share program can be implemented as a way for companies to retain talented employees and institutional knowledge. It can also be a way to provide relief for working parents now at home with children who are beyond stretched.
Job Share Connect is working with companies and employees to implement temporary job-share programs to get everyone through this unprecedented time and provide a strategic plan to maintain your top performers until your company is ready to ramp back up again.
Why Would You Start a Temporary Job Share Program?
Employers: To retain staff and maximize resources, we're helping companies find new ways to support their employee flexibility needs, without sacrificing productivity. Job sharing also offers an alternative to layoffs and downsizing by consolidating two employees into one, full-time position. This reduces costs, retains institutional knowledge, stabilizes morale, while allowing valuable employees to maintain a consistent level of employment.
Looking towards the future, a temporary job share provides an option for employees to transition back into full-time roles as the economy recovers and your company allows.
Employees: Employees who are struggling to maintain their current workload with added home and family responsibilities need creative solutions. This provides a way to keep their current position while sharing the role and responsibilities with another employee facing similar challenges.

How Long Would the Temporary Job Share Need to Last?
The temporary job share program could continue as long as needed or when employers can support two full-time employees again.
