To keep top staff, companies need to be flexible

Companies need to be flexible if they are to keep top staff, some of whom might be working in sales recruitment roles, one commentator has suggested.

Adrienne Burgess, head of research at the Fatherhood Institute, said employers are aware of the fact their workers have lives outside the office and in order to "keep the brightest and the best you need to be flexible".

She said this is very much the case when employees have children, as they have numerous responsibilities outside work, meaning it is even more vital for their companies to be flexible in order to retain their skills.

Her comments came as the government's paternity leave rules came into effect on April 3rd.

Recent research from uSwitch.com revealed that more than a third (39 per cent) of small business owners believe companies of their size should be exempt from the legislation.

Only 21 per cent of small firms polled by the website said they thought the rules should also encompass businesses of their size.
