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.
The resource has been updated to reflect changes to the contractual NHS Terms and Conditions Handbook introduced September 2021. The Handbook covers NHS staff in England and Wales, with similar initiatives expected in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
