Flexible Working Can Help Businesses Increase Revenue
Businesses could see a boost to their productivity by allowing their staff to work with a greater degree of flexibility, according to an expert.
Steve Purdy, managing director of Regus UK, said that his organisation recently carried out a study which showed that over two-thirds of companies reported an increase in output as a result of introducing flexible working practices.
This would require staff members working from home or another location which features an internet connection so that they could access documents from the cloud.
They would also need their own printer ink supply to produce documents, which can then be taken along to meetings.
"The more ability you give them to work with what fits their own personal circumstances and their own lives; the more it leads to more motivated and energised employees. By dint of that, productivity increases and revenues increase."
He added that 63 per cent of companies linked increasing revenues to flexible working practices.
