Flexible Working & Employee Engagement

Flexible working has become a worldwide movement, inspiring thousands of organisations and millions of individuals to work smarter and to achieve more with their time and resources.

For employees, flexible working can be the key to higher motivation and empowerment, better productivity and an improved work-life balance. A whole new generation is coming through for whom flexible working is second nature, allowing them to operate at their very best. People who have been with the same employer for at least 26 weeks now have the legal right to make a request for a flexible working arrangement.

For employers, the case for flexible working is overwhelming. It delivers a host of direct and indirect benefits. It can help you get the best out of your people, including attracting and keeping the top talent. It can make your organisation more productive and responsive. It can improve your competitiveness, by making your more agile and more able to adapt to change. It can help enhance your customer service. It can reduce your operating costs and overheads. And flexible working can make your organisation more environmentally sustainable.

To make a real success of flexible working there are many aspects that you need to consider, and we have created a comprehensive toolkit to help you do just that. Our toolkit is based on extensive research and feedback from organisations on their experiences of remote working and mobile working, combined with our own insights on how to use the full potential of superfast broadband.

Once you make the move to flexible working, you’ll never look back!

We like to give people the freedom to work where they want, safe in the knowledge that they have the drive and expertise to perform excellently, whether they are at their desk or in their kitchen. Yours truly has never worked out of an office, and never will.
