Flexible working offers huge advantages for employers and employees. Whether its compressing work days, flexible daily hours, or telecommuting, a flexible work pattern helps improve work-life balance, create a more inclusive workplace culture and incease engagement.

Embedding a culture of flexibility helps tackle some of the issues that can prevent employees, but in particular women, from advancing their careers.

Napier offers flexible working arrangements and this event is mainly an information session followed by round tables with Napier staff and academics who already have flexible working arrangements in place and what their experiences have been so far.
