Graduates could be entering flexible workplace
Thursday, 01 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business management may be interested to hear that a senior public policy advisor at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) believes flexible working is good for business.
Ben Wilmott said that there is a "strong business case" for offering flexible working patterns as it can help recruit and, more crucially, retain staff.
He added: "We also know that employees who are more satisfied with their work/life balance are more likely to be satisfied with their job and are more likely to be effectively engaged and go the extra mile for their employer.
"Hopefully as we move out of the recession the greater use of flexible working will lead to more employers using flexible working as we go forward."
He was speaking in response to the establishment of a new Family Friendly Taskforce from the Department of Work and Pensions that will be promoting flexible working across the public sector.
