CIPD are Lunching Employer Guidelines to Tackle Uneven Flexibility

If you happen to work in labour jobs or even in labour recruitment then you will understand how important it is to have flexible working. Tons of new case studies have been launched to try and show employers how to manage their atypical workers properly and even how to create a win-win arrangement. This news comes hot on the heels of a new government consultation which is going to try and improve the rights of workers. The number of high-profile cases regarding one-sided flexibility has risen and there have also been a lot of complaints regarding zero-contract hours too. When everything is properly managed however, the arrangements can easily help employers and even employees regarding their short-term fluctuation.

The new guidance which is informed by six organisations has illustrated the steps that employers can take to try and make sure that the scenario is win-win. It will also help employers to maximise the benefits for their people so that they can effectively reduce the amount of incident cases. This is designed to help those who have been exploited or even unfairly treated.

Ben Willmott who is the head of the public policy over at CIPD has stated that the evidence has proven time and time again that when flexibility is associated with atypical working practices, everyone wins. The guidance management is also designed to focus on what needs to happen to achieve this outcome.

The government is planning on trying to introduce new rights for atypical workers. Employers will have to plan how they are going to manage these types of workers and they are also going to have to provide a huge range of useful insights as well. This is going to help new organisations to achieve whatever they need, and it will also help them to support a higher level of flexibility too. A good work plan will easily be changeable so that it can implement any new changes.
