In a survey of 8000 global employers and employees, 61% said flexible working increased their company’s profits, and a further 83 per cent reported that productivity was boosted by flexible hours.

Why? Because flexible working leads to happier more engaged employees who work harder, are less likely burn out and want to go the extra mile for your business. We all have a life out with work and the desire to work flexibly is increasing.

Come along to this breakfast event chaired by the fantastic Jen Munro, seasoned entrepreneur and founder of ISSOS International, and hear from the CEOs and business founders about their unique approaches to creating a great flexible working culture. On the day you will hear from Pursuit Marketing, Incremental Group and Young Enterprise Scotland. They will share their business drivers, the challenges they met along the way and ultimately how a flexible working culture has benefitted business performance.

Join us for conversation and breakfast in the fantastic new Incremental offices located in the Garment Factory.
