Seattle companies offering staggered working hours

While we were able to identify companies based in Seattle that are offering staggered working hours, their staggered working hour policy was not found on a public platform. The information is not publicly available presumably because the companies often keep the employee policies confidential. Some companies that offer staggered working hours in Seattle include Accolade, Stripe, and Formidable.

Methodology

We began our research by identifying some companies that are based in Seattle and are offering staggered working hours. We started out by looking for their staggered working hour policy in the respective company websites. We thoroughly scanned through all the websites, specifically focusing on careers or jobs pages along with any information pertaining to perks/facilities offered to employees or their testimonials. These websites only identified that companies do offer flexible working hours. Details pertaining to the policies were not mentioned on the company websites.
We expanded our research and looked through articles and journals that identified the companies with staggered working hour policy in Seattle. Additionally, we looked for any mentions of these companies in news sources, press releases, and case studies. We looked up in sources such as Seattle mag, The Muse, Built in Seattle, and Fortune. Nevertheless, we could not find the required information. The sources identified that these companies have been recognized on various platforms for being among top employers or best workplaces for providing various perks/facilities to their employees including staggered working hours.
We broadened our search and scoured through review websites such as Glassdoor, Smart Recruiters and Indeed. We checked the company profiles of all the listed companies. Again, we only found that these companies do offer flexible work hours. However, their staggered working hour policy was not advised. The information could not be found probably because the companies only disclose policies pertaining to clients/customers on public platforms and often keep the employee policies confidential.

To prepare a list of companies in Seattle that offer staggered working hours, we studied articles and journals that have recognized companies for their employee benefits and especially working schedules. We studied and filtered out some companies that were based in Seattle and were featured in such lists due to their flex work hours making them best working places or top companies to work with. We referred to a database, Built-In Seattle, which is the online community for Built-in Seattle startups and tech companies. To the list of all Companies in Seattle, we filtered the companies with staggered working hours by sorting their perks by flexible work schedule. This application provided me with a huge database of companies in Seattle that offer staggered working hours. While it was not practically possible to study all 100 companies that met the required criteria due to time constraint, we did study around 25 companies in the beginning of the list including PlutO, Nintex, AuthO, Gravity Payments, SkyKick, Valant, Karat, Hiya, Groupon, Limeade, Drift, HighSpot, and Tangocard among others to substantiate that employee policies are kept confidential by the companies.
