Data Nugget: Easy Flexing
Meeting staff demands for more flexible work arrangements doesn’t faze most nonprofit employers these days.
More than half (54 percent) of nonprofits surveyed this year by the BDO Institute for Nonprofit Success said accommodating requests for modified schedules is just a low-level challenge, and another 18 percent said it’s not a challenge at all. “This likely reflects the fact that many organizations have flexible work policies already in place and may feel they are adequately addressing employee demand,” according to BDO.
