Other ways to support flexible working
While many health and care organisation roles can be done remotely or with flexible hours, working directly with service users and patients may require people to be present in specific locations at specific times. We want to encourage all managers to be open-minded when it comes to considering creative ways to allow flexibility. There may still be options for working different hours and working remotely for certain activities.
Organisations across the Leeds health and care sector are offering flexible working solutions that have been proven to benefit the service, patient/service user and the colleagues themselves. The below real-life examples from Leeds-based health and care teams and organisations demonstrate the positive impact that flexible working can create, as well as discussing the common myths and challenges surrounding flexible working, and the lessons learnt from managers who implemented flexible working patterns for their employees.
