National: Briefing: EMPLOYMENT: Bosses 'standing in the way of flexible working'
(Observer (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Employers are holding back attempts to increase productivity and staff wellbeing by failing to press ahead with flexible working arrangements, says a new report. A survey of 400 businesses and 2,000 workers by communications giant O2 found staff were willing to embrace new ways of working, but were not backed in this by employers.
Three out of four staff surveyed thought productivity rose when they could change working arrangements; one in 10 saw flexible working as more important than pay or holidays.
