Some of you may have read a blog post I wrote for Benefex last week, in which I talked about the desperate need for us to relook at the way we treat parents and parental responsibilities within the workplace.
The need to provide increased flexibility doesn’t just apply to parents, either. When CV Library undertook a piece of research to understand what employees would cite as their most desired workplace benefit, flexible working came out on top with a massive 47% of respondents listing it. Like it or not, a demand for increased flexibility within the workplace is here to stay. The very best organisations out there have already woken up to this, and are making workplace flexibility a key component of their EVP.
