What is your approach to flexible working?
The Company supports the use of flexible work arrangements because it promotes the work-life balance of our employees, and improves productivity, retention and customer satisfaction. Types of Flexible Working include:
- Work from Another Location Full or Part-time (Telecommuting): This type of arrangement permits employees to work all or part of their working week at a location remote from the employer’s workplace, either in another office and/or from home.
- Compressed Hours: Working compressed hours enables an employee to work the same number of hours per week in fewer days. The central feature is reallocation of work into fewer and longer blocks of time during the week.
- Reduced Hours (Part-time Work): Working reduced hours results in an employee working less than full time hours. Examples of part time work arrangements include:
- Working a reduced number of hours per day, five days per week
- Working normal hours a day, less than five days per week
- Job Share: Job share is a form of part time working where two (or occasionally more) people share the responsibility for a job between them. Employees benefit from reduced hours while providing continuous coverage for the role.
- Variable Work Hours (Flex Time): Variable work hours enable fluctuating starting and ending times during the workday, with the normal number of hours per week remaining the same for the employee. These types of arrangements may vary from staggered working hours to arrangements in which employees may arrive and depart as they wish, provided their work is completed. Most variable hours arrangements involve the use of ‘core hours’ during which all employees must be at work (e.g. 10am-3pm).
