Abstract

This research delves into the multifaceted relationship between flexible work arrangements (FWAs) and work-life balance within a multigenerational workforce. We conduct a granular analysis of how Traditionalists (born before 1946), Baby Boomers (1946 1964), Generation X (1965-1980), Millennials (1981-1996), and Generation Z (1997-2012) perceive and value FWAs. The paper meticulously examines how specific FWA options, including compressed workweeks (scheduling full-time hours over fewer days), remote work (performing duties from a non-office location), and flexible hours (adjusting start and end times), can contribute to enhanced well-being and productivity for employees across the age spectrum. By gaining a nuanced understanding of the multigenerational perspective on FWAs, organizations can design targeted strategies to promote work-life balance, ultimately fostering a more engaged and thriving workforce.
