Advances in technology have enabled the number of flexible workers to rise rapidly in recent years. In fact, studies reveal that the number of people working from home has grown by a fifth in the decade leading up to 2016. Increasingly, employees are seeking organisations that encourage and promote these practices and businesses need to think flexibly to cultivate the positive, enthusiastic workforce they desire.

With more and more businesses swapping the 9-5 in favour of flexible working schedules, we look at why your business should integrate these practices and how it can help you stay competitive.

With faster broadband connections and the adoption of cloud-based communication and collaboration platforms, businesses now enjoy simple, seamless and instant connectivity between colleagues, regardless of location.

But, what’s the benefits?
