What does your working day look like now? I’ll bet you a breakroom brew and a biscuit that it’s quite different to your pre-pandemic schedule.   

For many of us, the office-based 9-5, as we knew it, is well and truly a thing of the past. As hybrid working ushered in the potential to design our days, first by necessity, then by normalisation, there’s an expectation that this flexibility will help us to better balance our work and life commitments.

With more companies looking to offer greater flexibility, from paid sabbaticals and personalised bank holidays to unlimited annual leave and ‘work where you work best’ policies, how and where we do our jobs is changing.

So, does a more fluid way of working help banish burnout? Does less physical presence lead to less trust from leaders? And will flexibility for all finally begin to stop the stigma that surrounds parents who go part-time?

In this session, our expert panel explore:

  • The realities of flexibility in the workplace. Have things really changed?
  • The untapped potential of true flexibility – what are we missing out on?
  • How leaders can support and enable their people to do their best work.
