A keynote speech by our Distinguished Visiting Fellow Professor Ellen Ernst Kossek (Purdue University, USA) and a panel discussion on flexible working practices.
UK workers are being called back in the office by companies worried about productivity losses and slack. At the same time, of the 61 companies participating in a four-day working week trial, over 90% have chosen to continue.
What works and what doesn’t when it comes to flexible working? And how can employers implement flexible working policies that work for all?
The event is intended to interest researchers, employees interested in flexible working, employers, HR professionals, EDI specialists and students.
