Demos: Flexible working important in a sluggish economic environment

ServicedofficeBENews800626671

Flexible working, which includes mobile working and working in virtual offices, is seen as an important way of coping in an economic environment characterised by a sluggish recovery, according to a new report.

The think tank Demos revealed that this is “particularly important” in instances where employment legislation is proving to be a barrier to job creation, reported HR magazine.

To get around this, the report suggested that the coalition government needed to implement a “maximal rather than a minimal framework for entrenching and extending flexible working practices”.

However, Demos recognises that the success of flexible working is largely down to the ability of employers and employees to come up with strategies that are mutually beneficial to both respective parties.

Demos has also been working on its Working Progress Project that asks the question “What skills will be needed for the workplaces of the 21st century?”

This project is a response to changing attitudes about workplaces, especially since the buzzword “knowledge economy” passed into the popular business lexicon.
