Flexible Working Is About Where, When And How Much You Work

Demand for flexible working is huge. Flexibility Works estimates that 83% of Scotland’s workforce either has or wants flexibility at work. 90% of people in Scotland say their quality of life is better with flexible working.

Flexible workplaces are becoming the norm. Employees with and without caring responsibilities expect flexibility from employers today. And for employers, it’s the smart move. Helping improve business performance and resilience and ensuring employees feel valued and motivated.

Working flexibly also directly addresses many barriers that people have to employment and career progression.
