This paper examines circumstances inducing employers to introduce employment flexibility policies. The issue is discussed in terms of flexibility in the quantitative, functional, time-related, and financial aspects of employment. At the same time, an effort is made to demonstrate that employer efforts at introducing flexibility in employment should be examined not only in terms of opportunities, but also risks. The primary risk is associated with limited receptivity on the part of employers towards the issue of employment security, with its resulting problems of organizational trust, decreased employee loyalty, and other consequences that impact company operation.
