Responsible Business

Agile working encompasses working in a flexible way, such as part-time or compressed hours or regularly working away from the office as either a remote or mobile worker, perhaps working from home or from another office or client site, away from the rest of the team. This research showed a clear link between agile working and employee engagement but also a career penalty for agile workers. Management skills and leadership emerged as important factors successfully embedding agility as a business solution in organisations. These themes are explored in this research through focus groups in four different organisations with managers, teams and agile workers.
