Flexible Working Best Practice 2019 – 2023
The road to flexible working becoming the norm – not a perk, or part of the role a member of staff needs to ask for or request, but a standard part of the job description – as intrinsic as holiday allowance or a paid lunch break – has become a well-trodden path over the last few years. The Covid -19 pandemic and enforced working from home, opened up the flexible working conversation and many companies realised they could make flexible working work and benefit from it!
Over the past 4 years, Emma Cleary has organised a series of (initially called) Action Learning Groups – now known as FlexForward events. To share and learn from each other in relation to implementing and utilising flexible working. These events have evolved as flexible working has evolved, so we decided to collate all the content we have published over the past four years as a core document, which demonstrates the progression of flexible working. With guest speakers and peer mentors, who as champions of flexible working within their own company join us, to help channel the flexible working conversation to the next stage.
Each company we meet is at a different stage in their flexible working journey, so we hope that you will ‘dip’ into any section of this paper and find suggestions, hints and tips which can help you progress your flexible journey.
An overarching theme that we come across on a regular basis is that flexible working has a different definition for each company (and for different departments within larger companies), so we know that one size doesn’t fit all. We hope you that you will take this document and make flexible working work for you.
