Many organisations use flexible working as a retention tool or just because , due to legislation, they have to but they are really 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 because they haven't got their flexible working practices in order.

Just 6,2% of quality jobs are advertised with the option to work flexible hours which is a deterrant to 47% of parents, older workers and disable 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 higher level of job satisfaction, reduced levels of psychological stress and burnout and, consequently , are more productive and effective on the job.

In today's day and age , with the advancement in technology where jobs can practically be carried out from almost anywhere, beside 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.
