Alternative Work Schedules or AWS refers to a flexible work schedule, which is an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5, 40-hour workweek. More and more employees prefer the flexibility of working how, when and where it suits them. This means either outfitting a full time home office, or telecommuting, or using mobile tools like laptops, phones, video conferencing and other exciting products to get their work done. On the other hand, corporations save big bucks on real estate space and overhead expenses. So, AWS saves money for companies, creates happy workers and productivity is higher. A win-win situation all around!
