Employers 'should allow flexible working during Olympics' header image

Published: 5th Jul 2011

Many UK employees may wish to consider installing a satellite broadband service ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

This is because, according to the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), flexible working arrangements could be one way for Brits to ensure they can catch some of the action.

The organisation stated that the majority of individuals are bound to want to take some time off work to watch the sporting event.

Employers could therefore introduce flexible working arrangements - even as just a temporary measure - in order to facilitate this without loosing money.

"The boost to staff morale can only be good for business and allowing flexible working may well help to reduce the inevitable staff sickies," senior policy liaison officer at the CIPP Diana Bruce stated.

Satellite broadband could prove to be a worthwhile purchase for those who do embrace flexible working, as the technology ensures they will be guaranteed a speedy connection and a more reliable service.
