FAQs

Mykindofjob (MKOJ) is India’s fastest growing flexi work portal. At Mykindofjob.com:

  • You can find students who are looking for internships of their choice or part time jobs
  • You can hire housewives/new mothers who are looking for jobs that offer flexibility
  • You will be able to employ retired or people nearing retirement who are looking for meaningful work options having flexibility

You will also find accomplished subject matter experts, who could be freelancer or small boutique business owners/ partners, looking for exciting short term assignments/projects with companies.

Flexibility is one of the key reasons why a lot of good talent remains outside the employed pool. We believe by embracing flexibility as one of the key attributes in a job, employers will be able to attract this hitherto ‘unavailable’ talent and effectively tackle the talent shortage problem. At Mykindofjob, we have worked out the following flexible work options that employer can deploy:

Work from Home – Full

  • Employee can work from the comfort of his/ her home
  • He/she needs to come to office only in case of meetings, reviews, etc.
  • The time commitment required can be normal 8/9 hours like a full time job
  • Depending on the job, employee may have restriction of taking other jobs

Work from Home  – Partial

  • In case of Work from Home (Partial), employee works out of home but is required to attend to office every week for 1 or more days.

Compressed work week

  • A compressed work schedule allows an employee to work a traditional 40-45 hour workweek in less than five workdays.
  • Many compressed work schedule options may be negotiated. For example, a full-time employee scheduled for 45 hours per week could work four 11.15 hour days instead of five 9 hour days.

Part Time Job

  • Typically, part time employees don’t have restriction of taking another job.
  • Normally either these are daily jobs with reduced work hours (typically half days or few hours) or they have fixed days/no. of days in a week/month.

Daily Relaxed Hours

  • Daily job with less than 8 hour schedule. Typically you would not have the employee taking up other jobs
  • Ideal in case you are looking to hire retired people or housewives who may want to reach home at a particular time due to particular constraints but are not looking to take up multiple jobs

So, as you can see, part time jobs are just one of the flexible work options on the portal.

Providing flexibility can lead to multiple benefits:

 

Being flexible signals that you value diversity in the workplace

  • Diversification of the workplace is the new norm. Differing cultures, religions, and employee needs mean that today’s employer must accommodate diversity when it comes to working, thinking and interacting with others.
  • Develops image as an employer of choice with family friendly flexible work schedules.

Candidate is available just in time and just for time

  • In most cases, he/she will not bother you with a career plan or make his need for promotions and career advancements, your chief worry.

Turbo Productive

  • Increased employee morale, engagement, and commitment to the organization leads to more happy employees resulting in improved productivity
  • Flexi workers believe time is genuinely money and they are religious about opportunity costs. They are there to get the job done as fast as you want to get it done. They also want to make the best use of their own time.

Builds loyalty/ reduces attrition

  • Research has shown that flexibility builds greater loyalty within the employee receiving those privileges

Reduction in attritions leads to savings in hiring and training costs.
