Flexible Friends

Since 30 June 2014 every employee has had the statutory right to request flexible working after 26 weeks employment service.  Although many businesses were initially concerned about the change and the expected flood of requests it would bring, they have not materialised.  Subsequently it has emerged as a desirable benefit that helps to attract and retain employees.  Additionally, a government survey found that the majority of businesses surveyed found flexible working had a positive impact on employee relations and motivation.  With both parties coming out on top, we may see a bigger push for more companies to adopt a flexible working approach across the UK in the coming year.
