Flexible Work Commission
In early 2012, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation convened the Flexible Work Commission, bringing together employers, recruiters, think tanks and academics to assess the changing nature of work in the UK. The Commission, chaired by David Frost CBE, former Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, has spent the past nine months speaking to employers across the UK about their views on, and approach to, flexibility.
The result is a report and series of recommendations that set out the real business case behind flexibility in all its forms, make clear the value of flexible work to business competitiveness and job creation and pave the way for the expansion of flexible working throughout every sector of the UK economy.
