The objective of this thesis was to develop a flexitime feasibility analysis model for production oriented organizations. Current literature on flexitime was reviewed to give insight into the background and growth of the flexitime concept. Laws and regulations restricting full utilization of the flexitime system are examined and discussed, as well as the common fears and misconceptions of management, supervisors, and organized labor. Further clarification on analyzing the feasibility of flexitime was gained from interviews with administrators, managers, and employees in organizations utilizing flexitime. In those organizations where genuine employer-employee trust and cooperation abound, the authors noted that few difficulties were encountered in applying or administrating the concept of flexitime. Flexitime is not a cure for poor management-labor relations. However, given an organization where progressive management techniques are in practice, flexitime can result in greater employee motivation and higher productivity.
