Working Families employer members can access the full Business Case for Flexible Working here

When it comes to building the business case for embedded agile working there’s so much information out there it can be hard to know where to start. Whether you’re interested in future proofing your organsiation, or trying to win senior hearts and minds, we’ve created an online, step-by-step guide to help you construct a business case that is right for your organisation.

Our online guide covers:

  • Achieving higher levels of performance which can lead to increased output at no additional cost
  • Improving staff retention, reducing turnover and the cost of retraining
  • Enhancing your recruitment offer, ensuring you have access to the best talent

And lots more, including the case that flexible working is necessary to adapt to future trends:

  • The globalisation of work and demand for 24 hour service
  • Changing demographics and attitudes towards work
  • Delivery gender equality and diversity in the workplace

It also covers the social case and the health and wellbeing case for flexible working
