Flexible Working

Flexible Working

Embedding genuine practice

Organisations choose to operationalise and embed flexible working into their business for numerous reasons. For some it's to enable an increase in the diversity of talent attracted and retained. For others the decision is driven by cost and property rationalisation, or a desire to future proof the organisation.

All of our clients are at different stages in their flexible working journey. What unites them is their struggle - despite significant efforts - to embed genuine and commercially viable flexible working practices, such as part-time and job sharing, across all areas and levels within their organisations.

Uniquely balanced flexible working services

We are the only talent acquisition and management organisation with the expertise to design and deliver flexible working programmes that result in adopted, accepted and embedded practice.

We passionately believe that flexible working can deliver significant benefits. However we also understand that some flexible working options simply won't work for certain roles or businesses - the implementation must, fundamentally, be commercially viable for a business. This philosophy is embedded in everything we do.

Truly embedding flexible working - with the requisite acceptance and adoption - requires a change in processes, practices, capabilities and behaviours. Many years of experience, practice and research have provided us with in-depth insights into the levers that enable this change. Our insights can be found in the “flexible working roadmap” we provide to enable you to define the change required, create an implementation roadmap and deliver immediate results.
