Applications for the 2016 Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation are now open online and among new criteria for 2016 are requirements on embedding flexibility:

  • All managers are required to entrench flexible working for their employees
  • An organisation must support managers in how to manage flexible working arrangements by providing training for all managers.

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency has produced an excellent guide to citation requirements: download guide here.

We’ve worked with several clients to provide education for managers through our ‘Making Flexibility Work’ program and have recently developed a Flexible Working Toolkit that can be customised to organisations. The kit contains nine guiding principles for flexible arrangements, and you can download them here.
