Inflexible Flexibility

Thursday, 03 November 2016

Whilst flexible working patterns are becoming more widespread, new research released by the charity Working Families has found that high-earners benefit from them more often than lower earners. They found that 69% of parents with a combined income of £70,000 plus used flexible working, but only 47% of those earning £10,000 to £40,000 were doing so. They’re calling for jobs at all levels to be labelled as flexible. 


Flexible working can benefit an organisation in different ways. By giving staff a better work/life balance they should be happier and more productive (56% of parents in the research said working hours limited their ability to put their children to bed – cherished time to be missing out on!). You may also eliminate their stressful rush hour commute and potentially target their hours to match times of higher demand for you. Contact The HR Dept for help implementing a fair flexible-hours policy.
