My boss lets me have the flexibility of working 7:30 to 4:30. I miss a lot of traffic and can get to the gym for 5:30 classes. It also allows me to get e-mails checked and a head start on my work before everyone arrives at 8:00.

Allowing flexibility is a great way to show appreciation to your employees. Especially when you don’t receive annual evaluations. When my daughter was in middle school, my boss let me work through lunch and leave at 3:30 so that she could ride the bus home and I didn’t have to pay daycare.
