This aim of this study was to determine the biographical influences on flexitime and stress in an educational environment. The study was conducted using data which was collected using a measuring instrument and analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Reliability was also determined. A sample of 97 employees was drawn using the stratified random sampling. Significant differences were found with the sub-dimensions of flexitime and some biographical factors. On the contrary, no significant differences surfaced with stress and the biographical profiles. Gender did not appear to be significant in this study. The study also lends support for organizations to strategies and institute flextime, to rethink their organizational policies, and to focus on productivity and organizational performance.
