Why Flexible Working

Flexible working is the future

A study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)* showed how employers are missing out on up to 1.9m highly qualified candidates due to lack of flexible working options available to them. By 2020 it is predicted flexible working will be the main option for employers, fuelling economic growth, resulting in a strong and more efficient UK labour market.

Types of flexible working

Part time
Working from home
Compressed hours
Job share
Annualised hours


The ability to recruit from a wider and diverse talent pool
Attract a more motivated and engaged workforce
Reduced levels of absenteeism and more local employees
Increased employee retention, meaning a reduction in recruitment and training costs
