Is your company flexible?

ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: HR, business and flexible working



Is your company flexible? Many organisations use flexible working as a retention tool or just because, due to legislation, they have to. But they are missing out on untapped potential.

There is a flexible labour market of around 1,9 million highly qualified workers that British employers are missing out on. Just because they haven’t got their flexible working practices in order.

Only 6,2% of quality jobs adverts have the option to work flexible hours, which is a deterrent to 47% of parents, older workers and disabled candidates, to name just a few.

Inserting the phrase “open to flexibility ” into job adverts could fix this issue.

A study published by the American Sociological Association suggests that Flexi-workers have a higher level of job satisfaction and reduced levels of psychological stress and burnout. Consequently, are more productive and effective.

In today’s day and age, with the advancement in technology where jobs can practically be carried out from almost anywhere, besides in some specific industries, there is no reason not to take advantage of flexible working.

It is not a favour or special treatment to an employee. It is just business sense.

So, is your company flexible? I bet you want to change your answer now 😉
