Employee Benefits Magazine - How can employers fully embrace flexible working practices?

Demonstrating the increasing prevalence of flexible working practices, Flexible working: a talent imperative, published by recruitment site Timewise in September 2017, found that 87% of respondents either work flexibly already, or say they want to.

“Quality flexible working can increase an organisation’s ability to attract and retain diverse talent, improve employee job satisfaction and loyalty and it can increase an organisation’s agility and responsiveness to market changes.”

Proper implementation faces many barriers, but these are worth overcoming to reap the rewards.
