Flexible Working and Job Shares

To get the best out of your staff you need to give them autonomy over their time.

A study of UK businesses and employees by HSBC  found that nine in ten employees (89%) consider flexible working to be the biggest motivator to their productivity levels within the workplace – a view shared equally among male and female employees (87% and 90% respectively) – and more so than financial incentives  (77%).  Alongside this, 81% of workers believe the opportunity to work remotely would also help them to improve their productivity, making a clear link between flexible working cultures and increased business productivity levels.

Allowing your staff to work flexibly is absolutely critical to gender diversity and to your business. The old 9 -5 is dead and companies unable to embrace flexible working will miss out on talent and hinder their productivity. In many parts of our working culture, leaders still have issues with trust, accountability and ‘presenteeism’.

To fully embrace flexible working we recommend 2 half day workshops for up to 15 staff.
