Flexible working

Travel planning for employers
flexible working final

Flexible working, including home working, helps many businesses to reduce overall business mileage and staff time wasted driving. It supports wider business objectives such as:
- Improved staff wellbeing
- Increased diversity in your workforce
- To become a more resilient organisation to external factors, e.g. the Covid pandemic
- To help staff save money on their commute through flexible ticket options.

If your business has increased home working recently, perhaps you can formalise this arrangement for the benefit of staff and the organisation going forward. You also could consider altered shift patterns to enable staff to travel outside the busiest times on the roads and public transport.

There are a range of benefits for business on our Working Differently page. To get you started we’ve developed a Working Differently guide with the Chamber of Commerce, which you can download from us for free.
