Abstract

Nowadays employees are consumed with a number of family responsibilities and other personal problems besides the demands of their workplace. In fact, most people lack the ability to efficiently manage all these things, and this leads to an unhealthy amount of stress, an imbalance between work and personal life, and a potential job dissatisfaction. This is why it is important for managers to come up with different practices to help employees find a balance, and hence increase their overall productivity and work performance. One-way managers achieve this is by including one or more types of Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs). This study aims to look at the effects of FWAs on employees’ wellbeing, job satisfaction work performance among the employees of Pastel Agency Services, Morocco. The paper will be organized in Three different chapters. The first chapter is an introduction to the concept of FWAs and a statement of the problem, purpose, questions, hypotheses and methodology adopted in the study. The second chapter is a review of the literature. The third and final chapter presents and discusses the findings of the study.
