The rise and evolution of flexible working has continued apace after the pandemic. With a host of benefits from improved job satisfaction and work/life balance for employees, to higher productivity, talent acquisition and retention for employers—the drivers behind the trend are clear and here to stay.

This marks a vast shift in attitude towards flexible working and career design—with flexible working arrangements the expectation rather than the exception.

Join IEDP and two of the UK’s leading authorities on flexible working, Clare Kelliher and Sarah Jackson from the Cranfield School of Management, on Thursday 23rd February for a research-based look at the state of art in flexible working practices and to help us ask: where do we go from here?

What are the implications for managers and leaders today—managing flexible teams and leading organizations toward a culture of high-performance, inclusive and equitable flexible work?

Join us for a live virtual panel and Q&A session as we unpack:

  • The rising demand for part-time roles among managers and senior managers.
  • Research findings around manager experiences resulting in greater willingness to agree or offer part time working. 
  • What does a ‘high-quality part-time role’ look like—what does the employee need, what does the organization need?
  • The problem of career penalties—especially for women—and the lack of advertised opportunities. 
  • The role of long hours and work intensification in driving demand. 
  • The need for ‘human scale’ design for flexible roles.
  • The importance of predictability of hours and income, including for lower paid and part-time employees.
