An Academic HR Analyst at the UC Davis Library

Adam Stephens, an Academic HR Analyst at the UC Davis Library, has a flexible work arrangement which he negotiated shortly after the birth of his first son, over a year ago. It involves working an extended on-site shift on Tuesdays and working from home on all other workdays. 

Like all other subjects interviewed for this article, he expressed that being able to spend more time with family is one of the best parts of working from home. 

"If you think about commuting— say, an hour or an hour and a half each day— that time adds up. I have a one-year-old son, and another on the way, so I’m very fortunate that those hours are time that I will get to spend with my family. -- Adam Stephens
