You found it.
With the Job Sharing Proposal Package, you can be ready to ask by tomorrow. (Without sacrificing sleep.)
The secret? Present an air-tight plan and proposal that details the employer benefits of your new job-sharing arrangement.
Why a written proposal?
Because a verbal request will get you a knee-jerk ‘no.’ But who has time to write a first-rate proposal from scratch? Good news: there’s an easier way that saves you hours of effort.

I downloaded [your Proposal Package]…and submitted it the same afternoon. The next morning, after a 10-minute discussion, [my manager] approved it. She even said, ‘You just addressed every single concern I had.’ This will allow me the flexibility and time I need…Aimee Dennis, Director of Development, Dallas, TX

Let Me Help YOU Get More Flex and Free Time
Since putting WorkOptions.com online in 1997, I’ve equipped thousands of professionals in all 50 states and more than 35 countries with a proven template and planning guide. “Proven” means it gets approval for 9 out 10 people requesting a flexible work arrangement. Why not be next? Pat Katepoo, Founder
It works, but not for everyone.
Do you meet these three criteria for approval of a flexible work arrangement?
1. You’ve worked for the same manager for at least one year.
2. You’re a reliable employee who meets or exceeds expected job performance.
3. You follow the detailed format inside the Job Sharing Proposal Package template.
Based on follow-up surveys and 20+ years of customer feedback, roughly nine out of 10 people who meet these criteria get approval to job-share.
“Will it work for my job?”
Yes. Simply insert the specifics of your job and responsibilities into the proposal template.
[It was] so easy to customize your format to meet my needs. The professional written presentation helped convince my boss. Thanks. Luanne Cantor, Controller, Physicians Computer Company, VT
You’ll also tweak the Schedule section to match what you want. Voilà! Your proposal is ready.
Why That Free Generic Proposal You Found Online Won’t Work
Their skimpy outline suggests what to include but not what to say: “Describe the business case for your flexible work arrangement.” That’s it. But with the Job Sharing Proposal Package, you get the details in phrases that are both persuasive and professional.
I surfed for hours [and] while I found a lot of material, yours was the most in-depth. It was nice to see actual proposal examples. Dana Thompson, Wichita, KS
Why Not Write It Yourself?
You probably could, but aren’t you busy enough? You can probably cook, too, but sometimes you want fast and convenient, right?
Skip the writing angst. With the fill-in-the-blanks format, you can turn out an impressive and persuasive proposal for job sharing by tomorrow.
…well worth the money…it saved me hours of drafts and redrafts… Tina O’Brien, Associate Director, Alumni Relations, Seattle University
Are You Wondering…
Where do I start? What should I include? How do I say it? Your Job Sharing Proposal Package covers it all. Just fill in the blanks to make it a custom fit for your job.
I write proposals all the time, but this is so personal. I appreciated the guidance in how to discuss the issue in a professional way. (12 days later): My boss approved [it] and I’m thrilled. Laura Kaloi, Director, Public Policy, Alexandria, VA
Do You Work Harder or Smarter?
What’s your time worth? First, figure your pay by the hour: Divide your full-time salary by two, then drop the extra zeros. For example, $60,000 = about $30 a hour.
Your hourly: $ _____ x number of hours to write a proposal from scratch = $_____
If you’re a “work smarter” professional, you realize your time is too precious to zone out in front of a computer to write a proposal when it’s already been done for you.
“I didn’t know how to approach [the request]. Your guidance was just the boost I needed. My boss was very impressed and approved it almost immediately even though it’s never been done here. I’m so excited…” Tracy Ayotte, Information Systems Administrator, CORE Research, Geneva, FL
♦ Here’s What You Get Inside Your Job Sharing Proposal Package ♦
It’s not just a proposal template; it’s a full-on planning and negotiation package to get your manager’s agreement. Here’s what you get:
The Primary Proposal Template
The Job Sharing Proposal is organized into four major sections: Introduction, Purpose, Plan and Summary. The Plan is the core of your proposal.
♦ The Plan includes seven key aspects of your arrangement that you must include to satisfy your manager’s questions and concerns.
♦ The Plan weaves in persuasive words and compelling phrases, a distinct advantage of the WorkOptions Job Sharing Proposal over a generic one.
♦ The Plan is where you simply type in custom information based on your situation and job. (A job restructuring exercise helps you with that step.)
This proven combination of solid format + personal edits makes the proposal effective in getting the manager’s approval of a job sharing arrangement.
A Completed Sample Proposal
Done by a prior Job Sharing Proposal Package user who received approval, you can make minor edits to get a virtually instant end product.
PLUS: Scripted Replies to Common Objections
♦ “We’ve never done this before.” OR “It’s not our policy.”
♦ “If I let you do it, everyone else will want to do the same.”
♦ “Why do you want to do this anyway?”
♦ “Your type of job can’t be turned into job-sharing.”
Be ready with a confident reply for each of these (plus two more), included inside your copy of the Job Sharing Proposal Package.
PLUS: Bottom-Line Benefits of Flexible Work Arrangements
This section alone saves you hours of research time. Include these business-oriented citations to strengthen your case.
It’s a Planning & Strategy Guide, Too
You get planning exercises to build your confidence in:
♦ YOUR STRATEGY: Use a clever tactic for positioning yourself in the best light, reminding your manager of your value
♦ YOUR PRESENTATION: How to approach your manager, plus a timing tip
♦ YOUR NEGOTIATIONS: Include a positioning statement that makes it embarrassing for management to refuse your request. Plus: Know what to say to keep the discussion alive in the face of any resistance
Proven Format + Solid Strategy = APPROVAL
This is the best formula you’ll find to get approval of your request to job-share.
