dc.description.abstract The rapid trend of changes and social issues in managing the global taskforce have forced organizations to look for innovative ways of enhancing the job satisfaction of employees. Among these innovative approach is provision of flexible working arrangements (FWAs). The purpose of this exploratory research was to identify the effects of FWAs, i.e., flextime schedule, compressed workweek and telecommuting on job satisfaction from the perspective of the Ethiopian national employees of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa in Addis Ababa. To achieve this objective both descriptive and inferential statistics were conducted. The total population of the study was 250; out of which 71% were collected. A primary data collection method was implemented using a structured questionnaire. The analysis showed that there is significant positive effect of flextime schedule (R = .39, R2 = .264, p = .001) and compressed workweek (R = .39, R2 = .159, p = .398). This means that increase in the use of flextime schedule and compressed workweek enhances employees’ job satisfaction of the UNECA in Addis Ababa. The independent variables reported R =.39 and R2 = .15 which means that 15% of corresponding variations in employee job satisfaction can be explained by flexible working arrangements. Nevertheless, this study found out that there are no significant relationship of telecommuting (β=.065, p=.398) on job satisfaction. Therefore, since the provision of FWAs is at nascent stage, further studies on the effect of telecommuting on job satisfaction from Ethiopian employees context are highly recommended en_US
