Not too long ago flexi-working had a science fiction feel to it. The idea of doing your whole job away from your desk or even in a different country seemed laughable. The office was where work happened and that is all there was to it. These days it is different—flexi-working is a reality for swathes of the population.
The last 20 years has seen a dramatic growth in flexible working as employees and
employers recognise that the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. The dramatic growth of mobile communications and high speed broadband has enabled a growing number of people to take flexible working to the ultimate stage.
It’s no secret that there is increasing pressure on businesses to employ a diverse workforce and
with good reason. Over the past few years, while there have been steps in the right direction,– there is certainly more to be done across the board for diversity (and not just on gender parity).
