We are proud to be celebrating Flexible Working Day on Wednesday June 6 alongside some of our Members and with many likeminded organisations.
We all know flexible work makes good business sense. Flexible working arrangements play a significant role in attracting and retaining talent, increasing diversity, improving gender equality and supporting health and wellbeing of employees – all of which contribute to increased productivity and profits and all of which are of huge importance to NAWO and our Member community!
Over the past 50 years we have seen significant changes in technology, our family structures, communication, recreation, entertainment and job roles – and this is going to continue to rapidly evolve. But work structures – hours, location, and work practices – have not kept pace. Flexible Working Day highlights that now is the time for working flexibly to align with the rest of the changes in society.
There are many different types of flexible work, both formal and informal, that support innovative, diverse and productive teams. Flexible work can be part-time, job-share, full-time flexible, compressed hours, working from home or remotely and career breaks, just to name a few. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ and it can take the form of hours of work, patterns of work, or where work is undertaken.
We celebrate our Members who are embracing the benefits of flexible working and champion its importance as a team because we are all flexible women fitting in our work with NAWO around our other commitments.
