S5 Ep 11 – What is Flexible Working and is it Working for You? (Part 1)

Series 5
Epsiode 11
22 Mins

In this episode I am talking about this notion of flexible working, which has only really been embraced by HR departments and businesses since the pandemic. 

In many cases, companies are now adapting to the growing demand for flexibility in the workplace, but is this really a good thing for you, the employer? 

In a recent poll, many people who work from home admit to working more hours than they would if they were in the office. Not only are you doing work for free, but you risk damaging your work-life balance and increasing the risk of burnout. 

I am going to talk you through how you can approach flexible working with your employer, and how you can embed it successfully. 

This series of Mums on Cloud Nine is all about how we can adapt our mindset to step into leadership roles, and in doing so break through the gender inequality which permeates the technology industry.
