How might enabling staff to work flexibly benefit employers and businesses?
Enabling employees to work flexibly can offer great advantages to businesses. From a practical point of view, flexible arrangements such as remote working can decrease overheads and the need for office space, positively affecting operating costs.
Perhaps more importantly, flexible arrangements can help retain valuable staff (who otherwise might be forced to leave for practical reasons) as well as attracting a wider talent pool of people who may not have considered working for the company otherwise.
Flexible working patterns can also enable businesses to operate during extended working hours, with staff available to help clients and consumers outside conventional ‘9 to 5’ working hours.
Similarly, offering more choice about the times of day that staff are required to work can enable employers to tap into the most productive time of their employees' day. In the case of people working across different time zones, flexibility can also enable employers to recover work-related loss of sleep, thus helping to preserve employee wellbeing.
Employers offering flexible working arrangements are likely to see an increase in productivity, engagement and commitment from employees who are given more control of their working life and style of working 3.
Ultimately, accommodating for flexible working needs should make for a happier workforce and, in turn, make for a more productive workplace.
