UK Work Flexibility

It's a new year, so let's make good some of those resolutions we looked at last year! The prime one for many is spending more time with loved ones. I often spout about the importance of a happy stress free work environment to maximise a business through better more efficient productivity. Having a delighted work force that cherish the business they work for is difficult to achieve but one of the things we could learn from the US is the importance placed on it. Barak Obama has leant his voice to the cause.

As a boss have you asked your staff whether they would prefer a more flexible work environment? As an employee have you considered asking to work from home on occasion? Did you have a valid argument and is it possible for you?

The following film was created by the Alfred P Sloan Foundation of America, it does however beautifully portray the dramatic shift in working practices and family culture in current times.

This is not new. More and more I am being brought into companies that wish to initiate a social media marketing strategy but before I can start we have to assess the happiness of the staff, the employees could quite quickly scupper a great plan if they're unhappy or miserable - some will feel trapped and unloved and will go to great lengths to share that distaste. Social media is a great forum for it - a flexible work environment is one element that should be considered.
