Jonathan Swan, research and policy manager at Working Families, said flexible working is also good for employers, as if people have a better work-life balance they tend to be more productive at work, more committed to their employer and enjoy better relationships with their colleagues, making them less likely to leave, he noted.
The expert added that flexible working is good for wellbeing, as there is plenty of research and studies that show the more control people have over their working life, the happier they are as a person.
"People are more likely to choose to work for an employer that offers flexible working than one that doesn't. They will go to the employer who offers the best terms and conditions in terms of flexible working," Mr Swan noted.
This, in turn, means employers that can match the demand will do well because they stand to attract the best people.
