Flexappeal – the benefits of flexible working
If more jobs were flexible by default, more men could share childcare responsibilities and more women could work in roles where their skills are fully utilised. It is for this reason that Third Door has pledged to promote flexible working and supports Anna Whitehouse aka MotherPukka in her Flexappeal campaign to raise awareness that 54,000 women leave work every year during or after pregnancy due to demotion, pay cuts or compulsory redundancy. According to a study by Timewise, nearly nine million UK workers say they want to work flexibly but don’t have the option but, in most cases, flexible working means happier staff, lower costs and greater productivity.
