A case study based on Atkins who won the ‘Top Employer’ and ‘Innovation in Flexible Working’ at the 2013 workingmums.co.uk awards. This was because of their flexible work policies. In a survey in 2011, 52% of people said that flexible working times would make them happier. Therefore, this clause will set out the precedent for working mums and flexible working time.
A recent study by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development showed that there was no difference in the emotional wellbeing of a child who stayed constantly under their parents supervision and those that stayed partly under the supervision of another. Rather, it was the quality of time spent between a child and parent. This difference was only as much as 20% when studied by mothers who went to work and stay at home mums. So with this in mind, I’d like to introduce flexi-time to the company based on these key reasons. I hope this allows a more flexible approach to parenting and will allow parents to spend more quality time with their children.
