Labour Minister Derrick Kellier says he will be moving to finalise arrangements in the New Year that will make the flexi work week proposal a reality.
He said discussions will continue with the labour advisory council, unions and employers in an effort to address several issues relating to flexi work week arrangements.
Those arrangements seek to address the variations in the number of hours worked each day or week, as well as the days of the week when employees work.
Those arrangements have been under review for more than 18 years.
However, the labour minister said he has not sensed a great deal of urgency on the part of some unions and employers to get the flexi-work week arrangements on stream, since he took office.
Nevertheless, Kellier said consultations will resume next year, noting that a lot of laws will have to be adjusted before plans to introduce flexi-work week arrangements are implemented.
He believes the proposal when implemented will help to create more jobs and increase productivity.
