In 2020, the COVID-19 coronavirus changed the way we think about work forever. Many people started working from home for the first time, often at very short notice, and with little or no training. Whilst this certainly created a lot of challenges, a lot of advantages were identified too, and flexible work arrangements are now a permanent fixture for many workers.
With a background in academic research, successfully managing large workplace flexibility projects for a range of industry and government clients, the WorkFLEX team want to share their extensive knowledge and experience with you. Whether you need help with hybrid work models, remote working or the 4-day work week, we offer a range of online courses, coaching, consulting and training solutions, to help individuals, teams, and organisations successfully transition to new ways of working.
