The office environment is a changin’. The introduction of flexible working practices and the advancement of technology mean that today’s work spaces are vastly different to those even five years ago. Lancaster University’s Work Foundation predict that over half of all organisations in the UK will have adopted flexible working practices by 2017, and over 70% by 2020.
Flexible working defines:
- how you work – whether you’re full-time or part-time
- when you work – the traditional 9 to 5, flexi-time, shift work or compressed hours
- where you work – one person – one desk, hot-desking, remote working or a mixture of each.
