Take Back Control: How to Propose a Job Share Guide
Updated: Sep 22
Trying to figure out what to do this school year has everyone feeling a little out of control. The uncertainty around when school will start, what it will look like, and how to manage work and life can be anxiety-inducing. For many professionals, working 40-60 hours/week PLUS providing in-home learning, is forcing parents to consider different options, some even quitting or scaling significantly back to meet the ever-changing needs of their family. There is a need for flexible work options that give parents time back in their schedules, without sacrificing their career path. This is crucial now more than ever.
Job sharing is when two people come together to share the roles, responsibilities, and compensation of one full-time position. Job sharing should be considered by parents who need time to support their children’s educational needs, but don't want to give up their career. Parents could explore a temporary job share arrangement to get you through COVID-19, or longer based on family needs.
