MANY of you are flexible – and we’re not talking about your aerobic capacity! A report suggests that flexible working has had a huge impact in saving companies from the perils of the recession. Staff are more open to job sharing, shorter working weeks, and home working, in their bid to help keep their jobs – and the global economy going. Productivity has increased as a direct result.
Although employment regulations can be a hindrance, the message is that employing people at hours that suit them can be a boon to a company’s output. And yet managing to find available part-time resources can be a problem as many recruitment agents, limited to traditional practices, are reported to get only a proportion of the commission fee.
