Flexible Working

[ˈflɛksəb(ə)l | wərk | əˈreɪn(d)ʒm(ə)nt]
Definition:

Flexible Working is the ability for employees to negotiate altered work hours depending on personal circumstances; some of these circumstances include pregnancy, mothers with young children or having to care of a sick parent.

Flexible Working includes a movement of work hours forward or back, working from home or another location, flex time or job sharing. With the recent pandemic, this type of working is becoming more and more common because organisations are realising that it is firstly more cost - effective and employees tend to be more effective with flexible work arrangements. Employers must therefore ensure to integrate flexible working within their organisations; this could perhaps be a good strategy to attract and retain staff.
