You can read our write-ups that focus on the key findings of Working Hours, Flexibility and outline suggestions of how employers can overcome the challenge of being able to engage their flexible workforce in order to get the most out of the prominent benefit.

Our write-ups reveal that despite having greater access to flexible working, the majority of employees work beyond their contracted hours on a weekly basis but don’t receive any compensation - in short, professionals are working longer for no extra remuneration. Not all positive it seems...so what is the secret to success for organisations who have flexible employees? Utilising technology and regularly updating processes to ensure that this proportion of their workforce remains engaged.

The demographics of our Working Hours and Flexibility survey...

The majority of respondents work across Banking & Financial Services, Professional Services or Commerce & Industry. 48% were male, 51% female. Just under three quarters were permanently employed (74%), 21% were temporarily employed and the remainder were either self-employed or unemployed. 63% of respondents work in London, 37% outside London. The highest proportion of respondents were at mid-management level (39%), followed by operational/executive (25%) and senior management (18%) - the remainder consisted of entry level, C-Suite and those who didn’t want to disclose their seniority.
