  • This is very useful especially at this present moment, since most companies in and around London are preparing to keep working with The Olympics in mind, when most of the roads are probably going to be gridlocked and so it may be best to have staff working away from the centrally London based offices.

  • Absolutely, Olympics is a great opportunity for London based firms to experiment with flexible working. But its important to see this as menu of opportunities for staff and not simply a 'one-size fits all' approach 'everyone work from home'. As the recent poll by Mumsnet showed it isn't the ideal that everyone thinks it is.

    I agree with your point about flexible working being a "menu of options" Melody. What's important with flexible working is to keep it just that - flexible. It shouldn't mean that everyone needs to work from home (though for many that might be easier during the Games and it's the perfect time to try home working) - working from home might suit some, while simply having a smartphone to work on the move can be enough for others.

    What I think is most important is to have one-on-one conversations with each member of staff about what degree of flexibility is going to make their lives easier and suit them best. You can then match that feedback against your capabilities as a business and work together to find a solution that works for employer and employee - whether that's flexi-time, working from home or having the tools to work on the move.

    Hopefully the e-guide will help explain the options available a little more, and talk you through some of the considerations of implementing flexi practices and technologies from a manager's perspective.

    And A Mehta, thanks for your feedback - delighted that you like it!
