So Far Our Flexible Working Story
At MMB Magazine we have worked hard to promote flexible working and also challenge the perception of who flexible working is for, and what people can achieve through flexible working. We have had the pleasure of working with some great people and businesses who are exploring this as well and heard so many stories that we felt we needed to find a way to share these and make an impact.
With events like #Yorkshire Flex and our up and coming #NorthWestFlex event in Talk Talks offices, we have brought businesses together to discuss and share ideas, talk through problems and solutions over flexible working. The events have proved to be a great resource and have provided connections for business who are working with flexible working. We are even hosting a lunch event in 2018 for the people in business who implement these programes to meet and discuss accross businesses to form our very own powerhouse on flexible working.
Along the way, everyone we have met has had their own flexible working story and not just mothers. From the dads who want to have more time to make school events and share drop offs and picks ups, the Executive who was sick of the 2 hour commute every day and wasting her time in traffic jams when she didn’t need to be in the office, through to the carer who needed the flexibility to be at home but still be able to work and the older worker that wanted more of a work-life balance.
We are using the lead up to our #NorthWestFlex to promote these stories and challenge the perception of who a flexible worker is and what they can achieve for business. We all know the employment landscape is changing over the next 8 years and flexible working is going to become a key part of attracting and retaining the best talent. If you are available on the 30th of November to get to Salford Quays and the Talk Talk offices at the Soapworks please read more about our event and book click here.
