Abstract : Alternate Work Schedules, including the compressed workweek and flexitime, have been successfully implemented in private business. These schedules have resulted in increased productivity, job satisfaction, and decreased absenteeism. Through an employee attitude questionnaire, these benefits as well as possible detriments such as increased fatigue and job difficulty were examined among Civil Engineering organizations that implemented alternate work schedules. Additional analysis focused on determining if differences existed between the perceptions of supervisory and nonsupervisory personnel, and if differences existed between compressed and flexible work schedules.
