What is Flexible Working?
The term 'flexible work practices' covers all the innovative ways employers and employees can agree to structure work to accommodate business and individual needs.
Flexibility and Flexible Work are terms used to describe a wide range of work styles and employment practices. It is about maximizing your freedom to work where and when it suits you. We are all different. Not all of us want to work a traditional five day week or work full time hours.
It should be recognised that flexible working does not suit everyone. Some people prefer the structured, work day and perform better when they are surrounded by their Colleagues. However, there are a great many people who are well suited to flexible working patterns and who not only improve their productivity but greatly enhance their own quality of life.
"Flexible working" is a phrase that describes any working pattern adapted to suit others needs. Types of flexible working are: part-time:, flexi-time (choosing when to work) annualised hours (your hours are worked out over a year) compressed hours (working your agreed hours over fewer days) staggered hours (different starting, break and finishing times for employees in the same workplace) job sharing (sharing a job designed for one person with someone else) and home working (working from home).
For more detailed information on the different types of flexible working see Flexible Working Definitions and Employee Benefits of flexible employment.
