Electronic Flexible Work Agreement

New year, new Flexible Work Agreement! New year, new Flexible Work Agreement! Your Flexible Work Agreement is now online and combines all flexible work options together. Using Dynamic Forms, employees complete this new form online and have it automatically sent to supervisors and department heads for signatures.
