Alternative Work Schedule (AWS)

Prince George's County Alternative Work Schedule (AWS) Program

The AWS Program provides eligible employees of the Executive Branch the option to work either a compressed schedule or a flex schedule that would equate to eighty (80) hours during the bi-weekly pay period. The County believes that the use of non-standard or AWS can be a valuable motivation and productivity tool as long as operational needs are met. Participation is voluntary and subject to management approval. 

Types of Alternative Work Schedules

The AWS program offers several options for eligible County employees to work flexibly. An overview of the four (4) types of AWS options as well as examples of what each schedule can look like in use is included below. 

Types of AWS Schedules including Compressed Schedules that allow employees to work an 80-hour pay period in less than 10 traditional workdays, Flex Band Schedules that allow employees to start and end their work days during a flexible period of core hours.

Sample AWS Schedules. For more information on sample schedules, please email or contact your agency's AWA Coordinator.
