Nicola Ihnatowicz, Partner Employment & Pensions team, Trowers

Whether it’s a life work balance decision or having to care for children, grandchildren or aged parents, many of the working population require or desire flexibility in their work patterns. If this hasn’t been raised in the recruitment process, how do you ensure that you balance flexible working rights from day 1 for the employee and the company?
