Flexible Working vs Pay Rise

Flexible Working vs Pay Rise

9th February 2018 Off By Sue Marshall

Research has shown that many workers value flexible working over a pay rise!

The number of CEO’s who are taking the opportunity to reflect on this and to include flexible working options into roles wherever possible is gaining ground.

We’re currently working with a London based company who ventured into a remote working pilot because they were finding it difficult to attract contact centre level workers.    The salary they offered was at market rate but the high cost of travel into central London was putting the best talent off.

We looked at a range of Flexible Working options which included:

  • flexible or part-time hours
  • full-time home working,
  • part-time home working
  • a combination of mobile and hub working,
  • a combination of field working/home and hub working
  • a combination of home and office working

We’ve piloted these and the company has eventually settled for a combination of full/part-time remote working including the set up of  2 new regional hubs in rural areas of for which they have received some funding.

There are no rules. It depends what suits your organisation, it customers and your people. We can help you think through the options, bag the best talent and retain them.

The proof of the pudding is beginning to be displayed in their ability to bag the best talent in the market and in their improved retention figures.
