This report is based on survey responses from more than 1,000 employers and 2,000 employees. The employer survey is weighted to be representative of industry in the UK in relation to size, sector and type of business. The employee survey is weighted to be representative of the UK workforce in relation to sector and size (private, public, voluntary), industry type and full-time/part-time working by gender. Both surveys were conducted in early January 2012.

The survey covers:

  • Flexible working provision – employers’ policies and practices
  • Access to and uptake of flexible working among employees
  • Benefits of flexible working
  • Barriers to introducing flexible working
  • Flexible working trends.
