Dave Coplin, director of Envisioning, Microsoft UK, said that allowing people in sales jobs and other roles a degree of freedom in where and how they work can have a significant effect on a company's output.
"There are a number of benefits of flexible working for employers. Some of them are tangible, with some employers seeing an increase in return on investments. Also, they are getting more productivity from people," he noted.
The expert also pointed to a recent Microsoft study conducted in collaboration with the charity called Mind, which showed that flexibility can also boost wellbeing, so the workforce is happier as a result of working in this way."
It comes after the recent New World of Work survey commissioned by Microsoft found that nine out of ten UK firms have now adopted flexible working in some form, with 70 per cent of managers trusting their workers to be productive outside of the office.
