Building a better balance: Flexible working in formation pack for physiotherapy service managers

Employers are increasingly recognising the benefits of flexible working as an essential recruitment and retention
tool. 

This guide to flexible working for managers has been produced as part of the suite of materials for the CSP’s
‘Building a better balance’ campaign which aims to raise awareness about flexible working and give practical advice on ensuring that alternative working patterns work well for staff, employers and patients alike.

At a time when services are being cut and subject to efficiency reviews and staff shortages and workloads are increasing, requests for flexible working arrangements can seem challenging and difficult to manage.
