The change in our society’s set of values and the requirements of dynamic markets (shorter product life-cycles, increasing speed of innovation, greater customerorientation, internationalization, etc.) present companies with an increasing number of new challenges. These challenges are not only found in the development of new products, production technologies, etc. but are also found in connection with time and flexibility, in particular. Both theory and practice require new solutions in respect of working hours and their flexibilization. Which flexible models of working hours are being used in Swiss companies today, which factors have influenced their introduction and which aspects of working-hour structures should receive more attention in future in the opinion of those involved - these questions are the basis of this contribution.
