Flex Option

Compassion North America classifies staff positions based on their priority in human resources decision making. When third tier staff positions are offered to staff, they are classified under the Flex-Time Option staff category. Flex-Time Option staff are staff who have already signed a valid Part-Time, or similar temporary assignment contract, or do not receive Full Time hours with a current employer in a different health sector such as the Hospital Sector. These are employees whose availability is determined by their available hours after scheduling by their current main employer. They are expected to work less than 40 hours a week. The Compassion North America Home Health Services human resource policy requires that all available tasks, projects and staffing hours that cannot be sufficiently covered by Full time and Part-Time Staff must be allocated to Flex-Time option positions, before other staffing options are considered--except when the capacity does not exist within the organization for the activity, task or role for which a decision is been made. Flex-Time Option staff, as part of their compensation package, are only entitled to some benefits that are not provided by their main employer, appropriate for their role. However, some benefits may also be provided to them as part of the compensation package negotiated with them. Flex-Time Option staff have binding contractual obligations to attend to all staffing hours and tasks allocated to them in the monthly human resources calendar and to execute the fiduciary responsibilities to the agency in their respective roles. This is the third staffing option that Compassion North America relies on for its routine staffing needs to serve clients and run the agency.
