Flexible working 'can improve work-life balance'
Flexible working can often help employees to improve their work-life balance, it has been claimed.

According to Management Today, companies can also benefit from reducing the number of permanent staff in their office as it can result in the opportunity to cut costs.

However, the website did offer a word of warning to employers considering introducing flexible working practices, stating that they must ensure productivity does not suffer.

"You know your own employees best; factor in their individual capabilities and strengths so you can identify who will need more or less supervision and support than usual," Management Today relayed.

In related news, Prima Baby magazine recently discussed the issue of work-baby balances for women.

The publication claimed that female employees can often find it difficult to juggle the amount of time they devote to their child and their career.
