Why should flexible working be encouraged?

June 19, 2020

COVID-19 has changed the way businesses operate and it has shown that businesses can adapt to flexible working. Therefore, the latest campaign run by Working Families – ”#flextheUK” is aimed to promote flexible working for the long run.

Here at QCS, we were a supporter of #flexibleworking way before Coronavirus. Our people have flexibility around their start/finish times and where they like to work from. 

Has your company has only started flexible working flexibly due to the Pandemic? Are you unsure of the benefits in the long run?

To support the #flextheUK campaign, we have come up with an infographic to show you what have we been doing and why we think flexible working should be promoted. Take a look here:

Alternatively, you can see why we support flexible working here: 

1. It supports the team’s wellbeing

Flexible working time allows a better work-life balance. People should not be stressed out because they have to take care of their kids or get their car fixed during standard working hours.

2. Technology has evolved

Not everyone needs to be in the office every day to do their jobs effectively. There are video calls, collaboration tools and emails to help facilitate efficient communication.

3. It does not mean less interaction

We have our social events designed and hosted by different teams every week. Working virtually does not stop us from having fun and staying connected!

4. Talent is everywhere

You can now recruit talent from anywhere without worrying where they live and how long will it take them to commute to work.

5.Trusting your team

Giving everyone the freedom to work in their own way empowers them and shows that you trust them.
