Flexible Working: Empowerment and Productivity. The end of 9-5?

12 February @ 08:00 - 10:00

In collaboration with DAC Beachcroft and Real Estate Women (RE:WOMEN), we are delighted to invite you to our upcoming seminar, discussing flexible working schemes and productivity in real estate.

Timings:

08:00 – Registration + breakfast
08:30 – Panel discussion + Q&A
09:30 – Networking
10.00 – Close

This event will discuss the benefits of flexible working and give you some tips on how to thrive in your career and personal life.

Some companies are reluctant to let it go and embrace the whole flexible working thing: job sharing, flexible working hours, work-from-home arrangements, work-from-anywhere arrangements, part-time work. But, the most successful companies now and in the future will be those adopting flexible work schemes because that is how they attract and retain their valuable employees.

Research has found that professionals who are offered the option of flexible working are typically less likely to take sick leave and are more productive, as they feel more empowered by their flexibility while remaining at the same time accountable for their results.

Discussion points:

  • Does flexible work mean working 7 days a week, 24 hours a day?
  • Are employees on flexible working schemes happier, more productive and committed?
  • How does it actually work and what is the business case for it?
  • What do I do if my employer has a strong presenteeism culture? How to request working flexibly without sounding like a slacker?

Moderator:
Helen Murcott, Partner, DAC Beachcroft

Fiona Haggett, Head of Valuation, Barclays UK
Richard Martin, Director, Byrne Dean
Sisi Lagrem, Director of Advisory & Transactions, CBRE
