Constraints and characteristics of flexible work arrangements in small not-for-profit firms

Townsend, Keith, McDonald, Paula, & Cathcart, Abby (2014) Constraints and characteristics of flexible work arrangements in small not-for-profit firms. In 28th Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference : Reshaping Management for Impact, 3 – 5 December 2014, Sydney, Australia.


There is a great deal of research that examines flexible working arrangements, but this work tends to be concentrated in large organisations. This research examines the approach taken to flexible working arrangements in five small community based, not for profit organisations. We present three propositions that aim to understand the constraints and the characteristics of flexible work in this rarely studied sector.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
