I think it is win win for the right people and the right role.

Without the secret sauce provided here it can be an absolute disaster because not all employees and contractors are created equally.

In a pure mathematical sense, you lose in productivity eg, in a job share arrangement, staff hours are doubled for things like:
Reading Emails
Attending Meetings
Attending Training
Catching Up On Notes for Work In Progress
Performance Reviews
etc,etc

So you need to make up for the lost productivity elsewhere eg, 2 x super motivated and expert people can be some much better than 1 average employee BUT 2 x average employees job sharing would be a train wreck.
