Barriers to flexible working


All the time we hear people say flexible working won’t work for our business.
Common barriers are:

Flexible working isn't possible in certain roles or industries
Negative stereotypes, that people who work part time are not career focused
Views that when people have children they become less committed to work
When colleagues are not visible in the office, they aren’t working
When you start to offer flexible working ‘the floodgates will open’ and everyone will want it

The floodgates rarely open, flexible workers are proven to give more and although one size doesn’t fit all we see flexible working in well in all sorts of organisations.

Let us show you how we can support you to reap all the benefits of flexible working and help you business perform better.
