The nine to five grind is increasingly not possible and certainly not desirable for a lot of people, yet this is how our working day is pretty much structured. But it doesn’t have to be.
Flexible Working Day on 22 May is an opportunity to try other ways of working that may produce better results by increasing productivity and benefitting the workforce.
The Flexible Working Day website provides employers and employees a number of ways in which they can work in a way that suits them.
The site says: “Making the most of employees means supporting innovative and diverse work arrangements – from the night owl starting and finishing late, job-sharing and part-time work, to name a few.”
Participants in Flexible Working Day are encouraged to share their stories on the website about how they find ways to be more flexible.
