Flexible working for over 50s – A toolkit for employers
Developed in partnership with Timewise and based on extensive research and employer pilots, this toolkit sets out to maximise the benefits of flexible working for both businesses and individuals.
One in three workers is over the age of 50 and flexible working is the number one workplace practice that would support people to work for longer.
Flexible working is about getting the balance right to boost staff loyalty, engagement and help people do their jobs. It can be one of the biggest factors in retaining the knowledge, skills and know-how of our most experienced workers, and will be an essential tool to address the challenges that many businesses now face.
COVID-19 has accelerated changes we were already seeing in how, when and where we work. Staff expectations and ways of working have changed. This practical toolkit provides insights into how employers can make flexible working work better for them and their teams.
Employers who can maximise the benefits of multi-generational workforces will be the leaders of the next decade – benefiting from the knowledge, skills, and talents of all ages.
