Flexible and family
friendly working:

The competitive advantage for organisations in the technology sector

An industry

Flexible working is nothing new to the technology industry – many people have been doing their jobs remotely for years. Given that the pace of technological change is only going to increase, you have an industry under constant pressure to innovate.

The industry is characterised by highly specialised workers with niche skill sets that are in constant demand. This makes it a candidate-led market, which means that jobseekers often have multiple job offers to juggle. Therefore, it is not surprising that these organisations are more forward-thinking and leading the way when it comes to flexible working. It's a game changer – attract top talent, reduce absenteeism, improve worker wellbeing and drive profits.
