Jane C Woods, director of changingpeople.co.uk, pointed to a recent report by the Institute of Leadership and Management which found that flexible working can encourage a more results-based culture, which in turn can improve equality.
"I think the idea of the nine to five day evolved primarily based on the principle that there's someone at home doing everything. There are lots of other ways of doing it, so flexible working is absolutely a good thing for equality," she explained.
Her comments follow those of Dave Coplin, director of Envisioning, Microsoft UK, who 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.
Both return on investment and productivity can be boosted through allowing workers more flexibility in their role, he explained.
