friendly working:

The competitive advantage

Flexible working is

The practice of flexible working is becoming ever more important. In a world where we’re experiencing big talent shortages, organisations are working harder than ever before to attract and retain their people. The digital transformation in our workplaces and the technology that comes with it is increasingly supporting new ways of working, so we can work whenever and wherever we are.

But despite this, flexible working practices are still not commonplace in most organisations. And there are still many unanswered questions:

Perception

Is there a difference in the way different types of people perceive flexible working? How do their needs and expectations vary?

Productivity

What affect does flexible working have on productivity levels? What can we learn from organisations who are already doing it well?

The future

What does the future look like for flexible working? What should organisations focus on most?
