Embracing flexibility without compromising your organisation
Employees now expect to be given the flexibility to work from home
Embrace the new culture of flexibility
Flexible working research has shown that when implemented effectively flexible working can grow companies and give them an edge on competitors when it comes to retaining employees.
Covid has shone a light on flexibility in the workplace. Before the pandemic flexibility was tolerated, and only in particular circumstances. Now it appears that it will become the norm, with people working alternative patterns as standard.
Organisations still need to balance the risks and the benefits in developing an approach that meets both the needs of the employee and the business. And this requires the organisation to consider more than just where people work (and how they balance their time between these locations).
