Should employers consider more flexible working hours and schedules to suit employee needs and habits? What working hours would you prefer?

I work better early in the morning. I want to start earlier and end sooner.

I get more exhausted if I get up early.

If night owls go to work late then less traffic on roads and companies can get employees to stay till later in day 11-7pm.
Lunch at 2pm, tea ar 4pm Awesome! Dinner at 7:30 perfect!!!
This could totally work for me

Unfortunately employers are not interested in health problems of their employees. They have only certain requirements and demands

There is always some 'expert' telling us we need more sleep, less work, more money, more relaxation. I am sure they are right - but the next thing they need to get right is who pays ?

I've been preaching this for a very long time and no one believed me. Now under the name of science will it be more convincing?

Depends on industry type, business nature.... Customized work hours cannot be applied to all industries... Some need more time and some less

Definitely... consider retail and waitrons for instance, those are set times

The early bird gets the worm, but the night owl gets the mouse and everyone knows that mice have more protein than a worm.

What about the people who prefer starting their day early and not be in office till 8pm?
It’s to be respected that some people may want to walk in late, but let’s not ignore the early birds as well.

Many jobs just cannot give this flexibility. Emergency services and standard opening hours need to be covered.

I was lucky to have a job where I could come in when I wanted. I worked a 9:30-6:00. Drove in light traffic too. Perfect

True,but at the same time those people tend to work in shifts, so it is actually possible to accommodate employees in that regard because those that prefer to work early and finish early can do so. Those that prefer late mornings are also afforded that opportunity.

I wouldn’t be able to work night shifts at all! I am definitely an early bird! Up at 5:00....45 minute drive to work and “clocking” in at 7:00!

Many years ago I read about a company that ran three shifts and the employees worked shifts according to their biological clocks. It seemed to work out quite well for everyone. It's worth it for businesses to look at their own situations to see if it might work for them.

If you can't wake up early, then go find an evening job. Why should 90% of the world adjust to you?

Hell yes! I'd love to start my work day at noon and end at 9 pm... I already work from 7 am to 7 pm with commute. A 9 hour work day sounds like a dream...
