Job Sharing

What is Job Sharing?


‘Job Sharing’ refers to the practice of sharing a job designation between two or more employees which is traditionally undertaken by a single person working full-time in the organization. Usually, it happens in cases wherein a parent is coming back to work after their maternity or paternity leave.


The split between the individuals also need not be strictly half. It depends on their roles and responsibilities as well as their working hours. Based on these factors, their compensation will be decided as well as the additional benefits being provided.


There are multiple advantages of job sharing for the company as well as the employees concerned. While the employees will be able to maintain a better work-life balance, the company will be able to get new ideas for the position as well as have an option in case any one employee decides to leave.
