This report from shows how 1,420 employers used flexible working through Covid-19, and how to make flex work for decades to come.
Since 2015, Flex Appeal, founded by Heart FM presenter, Anna Whitehouse, has campaigned for employers to offer flexible working to all staff. It might be compressed hours, homeworking, flexitime, smarter shift patterns or any other variation, but hundreds of studies have shown flex improves access to work, reduces stress and improves our physical and mental health. And it’s good for employers, because it raises productivity, improves loyalty and can cut costs. It has been shown to work in factories, hospitals, shops and offices.
