Speakers at #Flexibleworking: The Big Conversations with Mummyjobs.co.uk claimed that flexible working could be the key to retaining talent. With massive shortage skills in the UK in certain fields, employers are now competing to become “employers of choice”.
The disclosure of gender pay gap data this April provided a much needed and refreshing perspective on how gender affects our work culture and the UK economy.
A recent report from the House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee has highlighted the key importance of flexible working for carers. The Committee remarked that while the Government has been pushing for wider acceptance of flexible work, “the rules are at odds with its rhethoric”.
When Sarah Usher, Process and Business Development Manager at Kilpatrick Blane Services, attended our Dentons event in February 2018, she had a certain idea of what flexible working meant.
Our small but ambitious charity has secured funding to embark on an exciting new project which will build on our current work with employers to develop a more flexible, family friendly approach to working, which benefits people, business and the Scottish economy.
We are looking for someone pretty amazing, with a background in human resources, to manage the delivery of this project, develop all project collateral and ensure our four employer partners receive dedicated professional support which will help them achieve transformational change to become a more flexible and family friendly employer.
