In a flexible working fix?

Posted on: July 13th, 2021 by Ginny Hallam

If you’re in a flexible working fix here are our suggestions on a proactive approach to a solution that works for all.

Flexibility forum – you aren’t expected to have all the answers (if answers even exist!). A ‘flexibility forum’ enables you to ask your colleagues for their thoughts on tricky flexible working issues – how to ensure your approach is fair for all, what if it works for some and not others, how much flexibility should you offer?

Trial – a flexible approach to flexibility! Make it clear at the outset that your approach to flexible working is a learning and evolving process and tweaks may be made along the way (or it may be discontinued).

Clear communication – you’ll only know if your approach is working if you land your flexible working policy clearly and consistently. Write it down, communicate it, then communicate it again. We’ve added an agile working policy to Intelligent Employment – click here to find out more about accessing our document portal.

Review – once you’ve given it a go, come back to it, look at the metrics and analyse, and take it from there.
