Working models

Traditional ways to work

The traditional 40-hour week is still alive and well. Most people in comfortable jobs in the developed world work to this sort of pattern. The other common way to work is in shifts, which still generally keep to the 40-hours-a-week pattern. These models do not take into consideration more flexible or less prescribed jobs - such as farming, or at the other extreme, working in the entertainment or travel industries.

Modern ways to work

Freelancing and job-sharing are ways of working that have become more common over the past two to three decades. Freelancers, or independent contractors as they are also known, offer to contract their time to a variety of employers and can work several hours a week for many or can spend most of their working time contracted to one or two employers.

Job sharing too has become common over the past few decades, with expecting or young parents finding this mode of working especially attractive, as it involves two (or, occasionally, even more) workers sharing the hours for one full-time job.
