P_HR_15 Flexible Working Opportunities

The policy aims to address the increasing demand for more flexibility in working practices in order to accommodate the personal goals and commitments that employees experience in their working lives including a common procedure for the semi-retirement of staff. It covers part time and term-time only working, annualised hours, zero hours/bank/casual working, voluntary moves to lower pay bands, return to work after family leave, flexi-time systems, flexible self-rostering

Flexible working should be available to all employees and should enable the organisation to recruit and retain skilled staff, raise staff morale, reduce absenteeism, respond to changing market conditions more effectively and allow more mature employees a more effective work life balance in regard to flexible retirement

The organisation recognises the increasing demand for more flexibility in working practices in order to accommodate the personal goals and commitments that employees experience at different stages during their working lives.
