Rutgers Announces Future of Work Initiative Piloting Flexible Work Arrangements

June 28, 2022

Last week, Rutgers University President Jonathan Holloway announced the Rutgers Future of Work initiative, allowing for employees to utilize flexible work arrangements for a year-long pilot program, beginning on September 1, 2022.

The announcement comes a year after Holloway appointed a Future of Work Task Force to explore insights gained during the pandemic. Subsequently, the task force released a report, An Unprecedented Opportunity for Corporate Social Innovation: The Future of Work and COVID-19, which included a number of both short- and long-term recommendations for such a program, all of which were approved by the university president.

Holloway was quoted on saying, "Managing the university throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us to be more flexible, resourceful and resilient while staying focused on what matters most to our students, faculty, staff and the communities we serve . . . As we launch the Future of Work initiative at Rutgers, we will make certain that our students are well-served - that they have reliable and consistent access to people and resources they need, both in person and online; that they can benefit from the best practices of technology-enhanced teaching and learning; and that we meet their physical and mental health needs as we also support the well-being of our employees."
