What is your approach to flexible working?
We have a dedicated flexible and remote working hub on our intranet making all relevant information and policies easily accessible in one place.

We arranged voluntary master classes for line managers to help them better understand the business benefits and practical implications, with the aim of improving the culture around flexible working and ensuring a consistency of approach.
