Offering staff flexible working hours

Posted on 25 August '14 by , under People.

There are many advantages to offering your staff the option of having more flexible working hours. It can play a significant role in reducing your staff turnover and also result in your staff being more motivated and productive. Flexible working hours can be particularly beneficial for staff who are attempting to juggle work and family commitments.

There are many different ways that you can try to accommodate your staff by allowing them increased flexibility. For example, if they have children who need to be picked up after school, then you could allow them to leave early several days a week in exchange for doing some hours at home. Allowing two employees to share a full-time role is another option worth investigating, and can be advantageous to employers as they will benefit from having double the creative input (where it is relevant to the role).
