Go Flex Programme

This programme is for businesses getting started on establishing and developing their approach to flexible working. Working closely with your leadership team and employees, we will help you to discover where your organisation is now in relation to flexible working, where you want to go, and how to get there, as well as identifying the benefits of greater flex for your specific organisation.

Go Flex FAQs

What size of organisation is Go Flex aimed at?

Go Flex can be tailored for any size of organisation. However, if your organisation has under 30 people we will deliver a modified version of Go Flex for you, which will be reflected in our pricing.  

What is the cost of Go Flex?

The cost will reflect the sort of business you are, with specific terms for charities, non-profits and social enterprises. As a social enterprise ourselves, any and all profits we generate our reinvested into helping more people in Scotland experience better-work life harmony through more flexible ways of working. There will be price options for you based on virtual or face to face meetings.

How long does Go Flex take to complete?

The average time it takes an organisation to go through the programme is 3 months. We would work with you at the very beginning to set out clear timelines.

What happens after Go Flex?

In this session, we partner with your Go Flex champion/s and/or project sponsor/s to convert our recommendations into a high-level project plan, which will enable you to roll out flexible and new ways of working into your organisation in the most simple and successful way. From here you may wish to roll out your flex change programme using internal resource or we can support you to ensure an effective roll-out either as a coach and/or to lead specific projects e.g. designing a comms plan, chairing a working group, line manager training etc. We will also continue to keep you connected to the latest thought leadership developments and our Flexible Working Community for Change.

Is Go Flex an accreditation?

Go Flex is not an official accreditation, but given the increasing request from funders and investors for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to fair and flexible work – highlighting you have completed the Go Flex programme would help show your organisation is commitment to flexible working. Go Flex is the only programme of its kind in Scotland.

Until we started the Go Flex programme flexible working had been some uncontextualized, abstract thing. Flexibility Works educated me and our wider team about what flexible working can look like, and importantly what the views of our people are on it. The final report is something I’ve used, and referred back to, for every discussion and decision we’ve made around flexible working since. It really did start our journey and spark our commitment by showing us very tangibly how greater flexible working could exist in – and benefit – our manufacturing business.
