GE promotes such arrangements where they support an employee's personal, family and community commitments as well as the needs and success of the business. As quoted in Forbes... "Companies struggling to recruit millennials should consider GE’s example of bold action and completely rethink the packages they are offering to attract young talent.”
Available to certain salaried employees to meet business and personal obligations:
• Reduced hours

A big part of being a successful employee is achieving a healthy and happy work-life balance. At Salesforce, we understand that our employees are at their most productive and most innovative when they are rested and refreshed. They are more creative and passionate when they spend enough quality time with family and friends and pursue diverse outside interests. They can only truly invest in our customers and our technology once they invest in their own physical, mental, and emotional health...and feel encouraged to do so.
Needless to say, the wellbeing of our employees is of utmost importance to us. We know that that creating a caring workplace is the key to creating a great workplace. So we take care of employees in every way we can.”
