The Importance of Flexible Working Training

The working environment has evolved considerably for most organisations. Advances in technology and the reorganisation of working spaces have provided employers with new opportunities to manage how, when, and where work is done.

While this change could present new challenges, implementing a more flexible working environment can lead to many benefits for businesses and their employees. Flexible working can improve recruitment and retention, increase engagement and reduce stress. Training your managers in effective management in a modern, flexible working environment is a must to keep pace with the evolution of working practices.

Flexible working can bring many benefits to both employees and their employers. For employees, it could mean an increase in job satisfaction, better work/life balance and a boost to morale and motivation. Happy employees are less likely to be late or absent from work. For employers, it could reduce the turnover of valued employees and enhance the businesses’ image as an employee-friendly place to work.

Increasing numbers of employees consider flexible working to be a key motivator to their productivity. Many employees and managers also find flexible working has a positive impact on individual performance in terms of quality and quantity of work. Flexible work hours help employees balance their work and life responsibilities – boosting performance and increasing average productivity for large and small businesses.

It is increasingly important to have a flexible workforce to attract a diverse and talented pool of people to work for you. Flexible working can mean people who have other commitments, such as childcare, are better able to manage their workload – meaning their skills are still being used by the business.
