TUC survey commentary from totaljobs HR director

By totaljobs’ HR Director, David Clift

“For some employers, it seems that a shift in the perception on flexible working is needed – from seeing it as a hindrance where employees are punished, to an option that can be used to attract and retain the best talent.

“Thinking about employees as individuals with differing priorities is important and offering flexible working should be, where possible, a component of any benefits package. Our research found that nearly a third (32%) of employees look for flexible working / working from home options in a role.”
