Flexibility raises productivity, say managers

regusworkerBusiness owners and senior managers increasingly see flexible working as a way of improving productivity, according to research by workspace provider Regus.

Of nearly 2,200 managers polled, 81% cited positive effects on productivity, up from 74% last year. In addition, nine out of ten agreed flexible location and hours improve staff morale by delivering a better work-life balance.

Flexi-work is also increasingly demanded by prospective employees, according to 68% of those questioned, and saves money, (67%). However, fewer believe this translates into competitive advantage – with only 49% saying this has a significant effect.

John Spencer, UK CEO at Regus, said the results serve as “a timely reminder” of the benefits of a flexible approach. “Having a choice in where, when and how we work makes a huge difference to our overall happiness; it helps us cut down on the stress of a long commute, frees up time to cook and eat healthily, or simply helps us get home earlier.”
