Job sharing is a flexible work arrangement in which two or more employees share the responsibilities and workload of a single full-time job position. Each employee typically works part-time, dividing the work hours, tasks, and responsibilities between them.
In the marketing department, two employees, Sarah and John, decided to share a senior marketing manager position. They each work three days a week, overlapping on Wednesdays for communication and collaboration. Together, they manage the full scope of the senior manager's duties, including strategy development, team supervision, and client relations. This arrangement allows both employees to maintain a work-life balance while contributing to the company's success.
