New flexible working guide launched

New guidance on flexible working that aims to improve staff productivity, lower business costs and help meet the needs of the modern family has been published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

Working Better: The managers’ guide to flexible working includes a step-by-step process for managers of small and large companies to implement effective flexible working practices, and features examples from companies such as BT, Sainsbury’s, National Grid and IBM.

Trevor Phillips, chairman of the EHRC, said: “Flexibility is a tool many British businesses use to attract and retain quality staff. Flexible working makes good business sense, not only in maximising productivity but by providing a powerful tool to respond to customer needs.”
