Discover a better way of working
The way we work and travel has been disrupted like never before. As our workplaces redefine their new ways of working, flexible working practices are becoming the new normal for many businesses. To help us keep you safe and the transport network moving consider working flexibly if you can.
Flexible working will look different for each business and for every individual, as the needs and cultures of each business vary.
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ model, but a variety of ideas and solutions have been developed to help make flexible working work for you and your business.
The role of flexible working during COVID-19
COVID-19 has forced most businesses to adopt flexible working practices in a very rapid way. For some, this has been an expansion of existing flexible working policies, for others this has been a much bigger change and adoption of totally new ways of working; overall, it has been a complete change in how society functions, conducts business and travels.
As businesses plan to return to their workplaces in greater numbers, flexible working practices are more significant than ever to inform and enable the ways we work and travel.
A key consideration for businesses as they navigate the way forward is to plan a safe return to the workplace. Flexible working enables businesses and employees' more choice to find the right solution that works for them, whether it's working from home, staggering start and finish times, rostering shifts in certain ways or working from other locations, such as suburban hubs.
Flexible working includes any work arrangement which changes the traditional Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 arrangements. As we transition to the next stage, consider how the changes and investments in new ways of working that you have already made, can be continued and benefit you in the future.
