Flexible Work Arrangement

Learn more about Stevens plan to re-examine the way we work.

The COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the way we work. In response, Stevens recently introduced a Staff Flexible Work Arrangement Pilot Program for the 2021-2022 academic year. The Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA) Pilot Program will begin on or around the start of the Fall 2021 semester depending on the operational needs of each unit.

The FWA has five key objectives:

  • Increase the ability of the University to operate virtually at any time, respond quickly to unexpected future events and promote post-pandemic health and safety.

  • Increase employee engagement and retention.

  • Increase opportunities to attract top talent as the modern workforce prioritizes work-life balance.

  • Enhance sustainable ways of working that reduce office footprint and expenses.

  • Maintain student-centricity focus.

The FWA will be a pilot program during the 2021-2022 Academic Year. University leadership will evaluate the success of the program at the end of the academic year and decide if the program (in its current or a modified state) will continue. Continuation of the FWA will be subject to the continuing approval of the President and Cabinet, which reserves the right to cease the program at any time and may be modified at any time.
