Review of Your Flexible Working Policy &
Recruitment Procedures

The new legal changes mean employers will need to update their flexible working policy to make sure it is fit for purpose from 1 April 2024 onwards. As the changes will mean employees can request flex from day one of employment, it also makes sense to also review your recruitment practices to ensure you are on the front foot when it comes to recruiting flexibility.

We have teamed up with Shoosmiths to offer you two collaborative products to ensure you are ready for the upcoming changes and to help you successfully unlock the benefits of greater flex.
