The pre­cious trees van­ish­ing from our ur­ban land­scape

Re­gus, 85 per cent of British work­ing par­ents would for­feit other ben­e­fits to take up a flex­i­ble work­ing ar­range­ment, while 74 per cent say they would take a dif­fer­ent job if it of­fered a range of flex­i­ble work­ing lo­ca­tions.

And while it’s mil­len­ni­als such as Gan­non who are lead­ing the flex­i­ble work­ing charge, 72 per cent of those aged 55-plus say they want it, too.

“Flex­i­ble work­ing is some­thing we’ve seen work par­tic­u­larly well for our older work­force,” says Donna Grif­fiths, di­rec­tor of HR at West­field Health, where more than a quar­ter of the work­force works flex­i­bly. “It can be hard to ad­just from work­ing on a full-time ba­sis to re­tire­ment af­ter all those years of work­ing. Re­duc­ing their hours re­ally helps the tran­si­tion.”
