A recent Reed survey of 2,000 office-based employees found that nearly half of those not working hybridly are prepared to leave their job to access a role that offers hybrid working.
With employees now reluctant to go back to nine to five, Monday to Friday in the office, after over a year working flexibly during the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses are having to adapt to a new way of working that is built around flexibility. However, for some business owners what was necessary during a pandemic may not be sustainable for the future.
We were joined by employment expert Stephen Woodman and HR specialist Jane Cordner to discuss how businesses can navigate flexible working. They examined:
How you can ensure your existing working policies are fit for purpose
What you need to know to successfully manage health and safety, holiday, and sickness cover for your employees
What business areas employers may have neglected due to the pandemic
