Business leaders support flexible working as it "cuts costs"

Posted on June 25, 2013 by allmumkind

A group of 22 of Britain's biggest companies have signed a commitment to flexible working rights after finding that "agility" in staff hours and locations can cut workforce costs by as much as 13pc.

Some of UK's largest companies - Lloyds Banking Group, BT, B&Q, Citigroup, Ford Motor company, to name a few have launched a new group called the "Agile Future Forum" whose aim is to revoluntionise working practices which hopefully will boost the UK economy.

Adam Crozier, boss of ITV, say: "Our companies and organisations differ in size, sector and location but we share a common view that workforce agility is generating significant and tangible financial benefits for our businesses."

The group have identified that already nearly 96 percent of companies are using some degree of "flexible working", it has at times gained a negative reputation. Previously, businesses have felt that is increased employers costs. The group feel this is contrary to their experience. "If implemented successfully by business leaders, workforce agility can offer sustainable business performance and engaged employees."
