More flexibility & simplicity through the Flexible Work Arrangements Pilot Program


Published: 28Feb2020

Dear colleagues,

As the rollout of the Flexible Work Arrangements Pilot Program and the development of a more flexible work culture continues, I am pleased to share two developments, one of which will give all eligible employees additional flexibility and another which will simplify the request procedure for MUNACA employees.

  1. The question was raised whether it is allowed for employees to take one of their two daily 15-minute breaks (either morning or afternoon) immediately before or after their lunch break. The University has decided, in the interest of flexibility, that employees can officially make this request.
  2. 500 Internal Server Error

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

Flexible work cultures are most effective in supporting both the well-being of employees and the mission of the organization when they are founded on a strong base of open and engaged conversation and collaboration. I would like to thank everyone who is actively contributing to these collaborative efforts.

As always, I welcome your feedback through flexwork [at] For questions related to your request, feel free to speak with your local HR representative and your manager.


Kind regards,

Diana Dutton

Associate Vice-Principal, Human Resources
