Work flexibility is coveted by many employees in today’s workforce and a legislatively defined group of employees will have the right to make a request for flexible working arrangements under the National Employment Standards. Employers may wish to take a proactive approach to flexible working arrangements to attract talented people and enhance satisfaction and retention among existing staff. Organisations must consider the disruption, risk management and WHS obligations that may arise such as in working from home arrangements. PCS can provide wholistic recommendations on flexible work agreements and advice for determining whether such a request is feasible for your business.
