Local Business Awarded For Boosting Flexibility In The Workplace

The pandemic has had an extraordinary impact on how we work and now specialist flexible recruitment consultants, Flexibility Matters, have been awarded “New Business Of The Year” at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2022, for their work helping individuals and businesses to thrive flexibly.

Marcus Atkinson, External Engagement Manager at The University of Sussex Business School, which sponsored the award, comments, “We know the struggles the pandemic has brought, and Flexibility Matters have worked hard to help, including delivering free events to boost candidate confidence and assist businesses with flexibility”. Speaking of the appetite for hybrid working, Flexibility Matters’ Founder Emma Cleary comments, “candidates want it and businesses need to make it happen, to afford a good work-life balance and attract great talent. We want to help everyone to embrace flexibility and are humbled to have been recognised with this prestigious award”.

Flexibility Matters’ programme of free webinars for candidates, delivered by specialist coaches, is something of a life-line to individuals trying to get back out into the workplace, as candidate, Elorena explains, “I can literally say that these Zoom courses have changed my life and have brought me so much in the way of connection and confidence”.

Their free events for business leaders, bring them together with mentors from leading organisations, to help them understand the tools and techniques which make flexible and hybrid working successful. Cleary says, “we need flexible working to continue into the future because of the incredible impact it has not only on people’s lives but also on business productivity”. 

Businesses can sign up to Flexibility Matters’ new ‘FlexForward22’ peer mentoring event on 13 May. Candidates can register with their CV at any time here.
