Demand for flexible working is on the increase, according to a new study by conference call firm powwownow.

75% of UK employees favour a job that gives them the option of flexible work schedules – 70% more than in 2017.

81% of women and 69% of men say flexible work options make a job more appealing.

Millennials are the most likely of all age groups to pick a job for its flexibility, with 70% favouring it compared to just 47% of over 55s.

Businesses who want to attract and motivate the best talent need to recognise that in an increasingly busy digital world, where managing work-life balance is more complex, flexible working is a key consideration for employees applying for a role.”


Jason Downes, MD of Powwownow.

A study in October by work-life balance charity Working Families revealed that banks lead the way in offering flexible arrangements for their workers.

Lloyds, Barclays and RBS were all named in a list of the top 10 global businesses offering family friendly policies and a variety of flexible working practices.
