A formal policy on flexible work explicitly states the intent and practices of an organisation.
Changing the business system is a precursor to changing attitudes, and interrupting ‘patterns of bias’ that may be restricting flexible work.
The tools below have been designed to aid you in the development of a flexible working policy:
Flexible Work Application Form
This form can help employees who wish to request flexible work.
Flexible Work Managers Response
This form can support employers to respond to requests for flexible work from employees.
Flexible work is most commonly defined by what it is not – not the 9 to 5, central office arrangement.
Understanding the context and maturity of your business is a crucial first step in integrating flexible working arrangements.
Managers are critical enablers of workforce flexibility, serving as the bridge between policy and practice.
