What is it?

The concept of teleworking and other kinds of flexible working are becoming more popular in the UK. But what exactly is meant by flexible working and why do you need to understand it as an employer?

Flexible working is a great way of increasing productivity and improving work life balance.

Improving employee productivity is bound to be one of your concerns as an employer or business manager. Flexible working arrangements can be the key to business productivity.

Flexible working regulations mean that in some cases, your employees now have a statutory right to make a flexible working request. So you need to know how to handle this situation. However, the benefits of flexible working are such that this is a big opportunity for your business in any case. You may well find that the opportunities for improving personal productivity and improving work life balance are so great that you soon want to put flexible working at the heart of your business.
