Working Patterns

Autumn Series
Working Patterns

15th September: 9:30 until 11:30
Variety and flexibility has been given a different meaning with the adoption on home-hybrid-office working. The tradition start and end time has been challenged, as well as the demand of micro-shifts and preferential shifts, with employees wanting some “pull” control over their working hours.
 - What shift variety are you currently offering and considering?
 - What stops you from handing control to your employees, to select their shift patterns?
 - How often should working patterns be reviewed, changed? What notice period is acceptable for employees?
