Revise Your Work Schedule Month

In today's work world, employers are looking for ways to cut costs while keeping good employees happy. The easiest way to do this is to offer benefits like flex-time and TELECOMMUTING opportunities rather than raises. And the employee who doesn't take up office space -- yet still gets the job done -- is the more cost-efficient employee. Besides, employers are beginning to recognize that the RUSH craziness cuts into your productivity. The only hard part is gathering up your courage (and your facts about increased productivity, reduced down-time, and cost savings to the boss) and ASKING for it. So we've got a few suggestions.
