Flexiworkforce “Future of Flexible Working” Event A Big Success
The Flexiworkforce team hosted an event at the beginning of the month in Edinburgh to discuss the advantages of flexible working. The event was attended by the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Fair Work and Skills, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, who gave a keynote speech announcing the Scottish Governments plans to promote the fair work agenda.
The event also included a Q&A session with Flexiworkforce CEO Tracey Eker, who after the event said:
“Flexiworkforce wants to change the way the world works, and for the better. Today’s event is a further positive demonstration of the Scottish Government‘s commitment to fair work.
“Business cannot afford to sit on its hands if we are to tackle the UK’s damaging skills shortage.
“14 million people across the UK want flexible work, yet only a minuscule proportion of vacancies promote flexibility. Flexible working is valuable not only for parents, but for sports professionals, veterans, people with disabilities and of course employers.
“This event will be the first of many in Flexiworkforce’s efforts to promote meaningful diversity in Scotland and across the UK.”
