New Blog: #BalanceforBetter: The Case and Choice of Flexible Working

Miriam Marra

From her research, Miriam has found that the probability of women in top management positions is higher if other women are also in those roles. She suggests this could also be applied to flexible working, leading to normalisation of flexible employees and better conditions.

Positive outcomes from flexible working can also include freeing up time to partake in diverse tasks or roles. Additionally, you can build resilience to deal with the workplace and personal circumstances.

Find out more about the research and suggested positive outcomes in the blog post.
