Growing demand for flexible working and an increasing recognition of its broad benefits have pointed to the need for practical, evidence-based guidance to help people professionals and their organisations to implement it.

This CIPD guide, produced in collaboration with Affinity Health, explores the effective and often creative approaches taken by real-life organisations across different sectors and industries. It draws together viewpoints from HR professionals, line managers and flexibly working employees to offer insights and recommended actions on what works in flexible working.

By adapting these practices and actions, particularly at senior levels and in roles and areas traditionally thought to be unsuitable for flexible working, you can successfully enable flexible working in your team or organisation – no matter what stage of the journey you're at.
