Small Businesses Encouraged to Consider Flexible Working

Working flexibly to gain a better work life balance is something that has grown massively in popularity in recent years. Recent studies show that 9 million Americans work from home during at least half their working week, while many more enjoy flexibility in other ways.

The idea of working flexibly to gain a better work life balance is something that has grown massively in popularity in recent years. Recent studies show that 9 million Americans work from home during at least half of their working week, while many more enjoy flexibility in other ways.


This trend has led to small business owners being encouraged to consider offering their employees a more flexible approach to doing their jobs. The benefits of doing this include lower office overheads and the chance to look further afield for their new members of staff.


Craig Ridley, who is the Founder of YourBusinessCoachingClub, advised that this approach can mean working from home or else using flexible hours while working in an office. Those working from home need to take advantage of the latest communications technology and have a solid internet connection.


Another modern trend that entrepreneurs have been encouraged to look into is that of sharing working spaces, which can lead to new networking and collaboration opportunities. A more flexible approach to the working lifestyle has grown rapidly in popularity in the UK and USA, while it has been slower to take off in Australia.


Mr Ridley carried on by mentioning that two thirds of workers who want to work from home see this as being a chance to improve their work life balance as well as their quality of life in general. He said, “while flexible working might not suit every type of business, it is worth considering the possible benefits to both the company and the employee.”
