chapter 8

Adidas cares a lot about its employees and aims to harmonize employees’ work life and personal life. The company has many alternative work arraignments to increase employee motivation and job satisfaction. Adidas uses flexible working time models such as FlexiTime and myTime to make employees’ lives easier. FlexiTime is a system that  gives employees the freedom to organize their working hours individually. Based on the number of hours worked, overtime can be taken off as ‘flexidays’. So if you work more than your usual hours one week, you can take them off at a later date. The other system myTime is used so you can save extra hours worked and convert them into anything you want. These hours can convert to benefits such as  paid vacation, early retirement, or family care. With both of these models, Adidas gives its employees the opportunity to deal with things outside of work.
