    This item will show under the following categories: Governance  

    From 06 April 2024, businesses will need to change how they manage flexible working requests from employees. All employees have the legal right to request flexible working. From 06 April, they will be able to make a statutory request to make a permanent change to their contract from their first day of employment.

    Working flexibly enables opportunities to work that suit employer and employee needs. It goes beyond simply working from home. Options are wide-ranging, from job sharing and compressed hours, to flexi-time and annualised hours.

    Offering flexible working options can benefit businesses, including increased retention rates, a higher number of job applicants and reduced absence rates.

    Learn more about flexible working, benefits, and the legal changes here.
