Sometimes, the right person is two people.
Let us introduce you to the benefits of job sharing.
Employee recruitment and retention is more challenging than ever. The range of skillsets you need is increasing, but your salary allocations probably can’t keep pace. You may also worry about your most valuable employees taking another job — and taking all of their institutional and practical knowledge with them.
You need to do a lot more with a lot less, so you’re constantly looking for that one magical hire to solve several challenges. What if you could acquire two magical hires for the cost of one salary? What if you could retain current employees— and their valuable knowledge — by offering a new way to work?
We can help with both.
Retain your history
by offering a brighter future.
When a valued employee leaves your company, they take all of their knowledge — about your company and how it runs — with them. Avoiding costly turnover is just good business.
Job sharing could be the answer. It provides an alternative to employees who feel like they must choose between their job and other obligations — like caring for a family member or going back to school. It also gives older employees an option to transition into retirement, while training their replacement.
Don’t hunt for a unicorn. Build one.
Your budget allows for only one new hire, but your day-to-day business is in need of several different skillsets. You need that one magical employee. Or do you? With a job sharing program, you could get a broader range of skills and deeper knowledge from a pair of employees at the cost of a single salary — solving both your business challenges and your overhead limitations.
96% of the workforce needs some form of flexibility, yet only 42% have access to the flexibility they need.
