Join us on 27th June, where #YouEqualTech is teaming up with LinkedIn to talk about why greater flexibility in the workplace can lead to greater diversity. Flexible working is about empowering people to work when and where they want, giving access to new talent pools and giving better balance to our lives.
As ‘flexible working’ is becoming increasingly common in many sectors and roles, we explore how you can adapt your working hours to suit your requirements and lifestyle (making work work for you!) Our speakers will share how working flexibly can improve staff motivation, retention, productivity and diversity.
As always, you can expect plenty of actionable advice, tips and interesting facts from our speakers.
We'll be joined by:
