Recent research has again shown the younger generation are looking for a more flexible working arrangement. Indeed there is consensus that flexible working would in fact help stimulate economic growth.
The Recruitment and Employment Confederation have said “employers are going to have to think about how they engage people, how they employ them and the different types of contractual relationships they have in place” (http://bit.ly/narIqK).
This approach will require business owners and managers to adopt a different mindset and view their business as worker-led not just business-led. But there is no reason that this approach would not benefit such companies – it is an exciting, more dynamic approach to staffing.
I am very interested to find out different experiences and views, from businesses and employees, how do you think flexible working would affect your company? Would it work? Is it an exciting approach or unfeasible?
