Work-life organisation Working Families has welcomed the publication of the Children and Families Bill today which extends the right to request flexible working to all employees and introduces shared parental leave.
Working Families Chief Executive, Sarah Jackson said:
“These changes are good for families and good for business. All our research and day to day work with our employer members shows that flexible working brings performance gains. Employers who allow flexible working benefit from better retention rates, reduced absenteeism and from loyal and motivated employees.
