Research shows that employees who feel trusted and valued will always go above and beyond their role and what is expected of them. This is a huge benefit to both employees and the employer. One way of ensuring that employees feel trusted and valued is through flexible working. In this blog post we look at the benefits of flexible work, for both employees and employers.
The Benefits Of Flexible Work For Employees
It can be hard to manage a good work-life balance if you have a long commute to and from work. This is especially the case when it is during rush hour traffic and peak travel times. Flexible working enables you to work from a location of your choice and at times that you choose. This means you can gain better control of your life and not spend hours stuck in traffic.
Research suggests that the average employee working flexibly can also save an average of £44.78 every month. This is from saving on travel expenses and buying lunch at work.
