Work Muse

Job sharing: A partnership between two people to share the responsibilities of one full-time position.

Work Muse is a job share solutions firm; our mission is to drive adoption of job sharing in business as a source of competitive advantage while helping individuals find work-life balance.

Founder Melissa Nicholson began Work Muse to spread the little known, innovative flexible work practice so others could experience the win-win-win for career-family-self she found in her own job sharing for nearly a decade. The world of work is changing – globalization and digital over time have left us with 24/7 work demands and an unsustainable way to work – especially for working moms and caregivers.

Work Muse empowers individuals to create their own successful job share arrangements and works with employers to create job share programs with training, implementation, and support to attract and retain diverse talent.
