A NEW report has praised the benefits of flexible working, finding it improves an individual’s performance and increases their loyalty.


The research is the result of a two-year project by Cranfield School of Management called Flexible Working and Performance. It questioned flexible workers, their co-workers and managers, finding there was either a positive impact or no impact on the quality of work produced.


Flexible workers were also found to have higher levels of organisational commitment and in some cases a higher level of job satisfaction.


Pat McFadden, UK Minister for Employment Relations, said: “This report shows that helping parents and carers to better balance their work and home commitments can be good for families and business.”
