Testimonials

“Inspire reached out to Flexibility Works during the pandemic to support our organisation navigate return to office and hybrid working. They have been hugely helpful in providing their experience they have gained in the care and other sectors and supporting us with our policies, practical side, training and strategic thinking in a complex change process to hybrid working. We found them to be excellent to work with, knowledgeable and friendly supporting us through the journey. We recommend them for any organisation grappling with this change.”

Linda Gray

CEO, Inspire

“The team at Flexibility Works are so knowledgeable and passionate about their topic and are always there to provide really good best-practice guidance. Since working with Flexibility Works, we’ve had the opportunity to get involved with a great community of like-minded businesses and we hope we’ve managed to impart some of our own knowledge along the way to any companies that are unsure about flexible working. Aside from the business benefits, we just enjoy working with the Flexibility Works team – they are such lovely people and lots of fun – they genuinely care about what they are doing and it shows”.
