Half of respondents offer some flex time for exempt employees, 20% offer core flex, and 11% offer totally flexible hours.  

In addition, the survey found half of respondents define their dress codes as relaxed and casual, while nearly a third (31%) report their dress code is traditional/business attire. Only 22% said they relax their dress codes for the summer months.  

Sixty-two percent of responding organizations offer weekly dress down days, and another 24% have occasional dress down days. Ten percent indicated they offer dress down days as a reward for performance.
