Key findings
Things have changed for the better over the last 10 years but it seems there’s still work to do.

  •  91% of employers feeling that attitudes are more positive than 10 years ago which is a great result but only 29% felt there had been ‘significant  improvement’.
    •    83% of employers agree that flexible working has benefited their business with 56% agreeing strongly and none disagreeing.
    •    Benefits quoted by employers of flexible working include greater retention of valuable staff, employee wellbeing and satisfaction and access to a broader talent pool when recruiting. 

    We hope you find the research enlightening and you can follow the debate at #10yrsflexi.

The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
