4-day working week? Or compulsory 5 days in the office? Do your colleagues have true flexibility? Or do you have a culture of burn-out with working conditions under question? And how do ensure optimum work/life balance when you have businesses that are reliant on shift work, stores, factories and DCs. Ensuring your colleagues are able to deliver at work but also switch off is paramount to business success; it increases standards and productivity and reduces turnover and absenteeism. But what does a work/life balance really mean when a one size fits all policy won't work for your employees?

In this session we will explore:

  • Retailers and FMCGs who have successfully implemented flexible working across their workforce
  • The challenges of flexibility for businesses that hinge on shift work
  • Hurdles to overcome, and best practice from those with thriving, happy cultures
