DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION (DEI) ACTION GROUP ‘Flexible working: just an experiment or the greatest opportunity?’
Driving forward change within DE&I in our agencies takes many paths, but flexible working can often be overlooked as a really powerful tool to enable this.
It supports those with health conditions and caring responsibilities, helps reduce the gender pay gap, can improve social mobility, and can provide greater access to employment for those with disabilities.
With all the benefits, why are some companies still reluctant to commit to flexible working ongoing, and see it as a bit of an experiment?
To help us unpick this topic and share with us why it is the greatest opportunity we are lucky enough to be joined by a guest speaker – Molly Johnson Jones who has co-founded Flexa Careers.
Molly co-founded Flexa careers after realising there was a total lack of transparency about flexible working from companies. It may often be a line at the bottom of a JD, so how do you know if they truly are flexible?
Therefore Molly went away and created a flexible jobs board that verifies employers on their flexibility, and gives candidates true transparency from the start.
In this session, Molly will unpick this topic with us, share why flexibility needs to be at the heart of your organisation ongoing and there will be space for questions and answers so we leave feeling empowered to drive forward the change and commit to being flexible for all.
