Commenting on the new guidance from the Flexible Working Taskforce, BCC Head of People Policy, Jane Gratton, said:

“Many businesses have experienced the benefits of staff working from home over the past 18 months and our research indicates three quarters of employers will continue to offer hybrid working going forward.

“This  new guidance will help all employers to confidently implement and roll-out hybrid working in a way that is fair and accessible to their workforce.

“Flexible working makes good business sense and is increasingly becoming a standard part of staff benefit packages.  While remote working may not be practical for all job types, the wide range of other flexible working options that firms can consider  opens the door  to new  talent to fuel growth  and rebuild our economy.”
