FIrms holding back on flexible working hours ; NEWSbriefs [Herald, The (Plymouth, England)]
(Herald, The (Plymouth, England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) EMPLOYERS are holding back attempts to increase productivity and staff well-being by failing to press ahead with flexible working arrangements, according to a new report.
A survey of 400 businesses and 2,000 workers by communications giant O2 found that staff were willing to embrace new ways of working, but they were not being supported by their employers. Three out of four employees said productivity increased if they could change working arrangements, while one in 10 regarded flexi-working as more important than pay or holidays. Almost four out of five employers said flexible working was encouraged in their organisation, but fewer than one in five staff agreed.
