Understanding Flexible Working
Flexible working is an arrangement between an employer and an employee that allows for a more flexible schedule and different working arrangements than the traditional 9-5 format. It offers employees the opportunity to work around other commitments, such as family and personal commitments, and can help to improve job satisfaction and productivity.
Flexible working can include:
- Flexible hours: This allows an employee to work different hours from the typical 9-5 workday. This could include working longer hours over fewer days, or starting and finishing work earlier or later than usual
