NCT's response to changes being made to flexible working arrangements

Released on: 30 June 2014

Commenting on the changes being made to flexible working arrangements today, NCT Chief Executive Belinda Phipps said:

“We know parents want more flexible work to help them look after their families so today is an important step forward. As well as helping parents balance work and family responsibilities, it also enables businesses to hold onto skilled workers who might otherwise drop out of the labour market. But if the government wants more parents to take up flexible working then it has to do more to educate and inform employers and employees about the changes it has made.”
