A fifth of employees ‘too afraid’ to discuss flexible working

Of those who bring it up 79% have had their request accepted

Over one in five (21%) UK private sector employees are too afraid to discuss flexible working with their boss because they think they will say no. Employees have the legal right to make a statutory application to their employer to change their working pattern. A recent report found people aged 35-49 are the most likely to refrain from exercising their legal right – nearly one in four (24%) shied away from starting a conversation for fear of rejection. Of the 54% of employees who have initiated a conversation, 79% have had their request accepted. Almost two in three private sector businesses (64%) said they already offer the opportunity for flexible working. Excerpt from Health Insurance Daily, read the full article here.
