If you’re feeling stressed

If you need a flexible work schedule

Flexible schedule options are available to help you take care of yourself and your family while you continue to be productive and meet your work commitments. The options vary from being offline for certain hours during the day, an occasional reduced-hour work schedule or a formal change to part-time status. Please review the flexibility options on the COVID-19 section on Inside Adobe and discuss your flexibility needs with your manager.
