Job Sharing Benefits

Organizations looking for ways to get the most out of two talented people, who are unable / unwilling to work a full work week (40+ hours), may look at Job Sharing as a way to have their cake and eat it too. The idea is to take two people with complimentary scheduling needs and pair them together to handle one functional role. Communication is key, as is respect for the fact that when one of them leaves for the day / week they should not be fearful of being called, emailed, etc. with any regularity. The pairing can be hugely beneficial if managed properly and with proper expectations. A thoughtful mapping out beforehand is necessary for success.
