Make Flexible Working work!

Whether it’s home working, mobile working, job sharing, flexitime or any of the working arrangements that are not 9 to 5 in a fixed location – flexible working requires specific skills!

Flexible workers need to be especially skilled at motivating and managing themselves, as well as managing their interactions with team members, managers, other departments and of course customers. The skills apply equally to those colleagues who continue with 9 – 5 office-based arrangements in an environment where flexible working is in place.

The 7 skills focused on in this Skills Builder are not new but in the world of flexible working they need special attention and to be used thoughtfully. They can all be developed and learnt. Spending time improving and polishing them will facilitate productivity, and effectiveness and increase job satisfaction, well-being and morale.
