Employees still being denied the opportunity of flexible working, report suggests

Tensor Workforce Management System

A large number of employees are still not benefiting from flexible working hours despite asking for them repeatedly, recent research has been able to reveal.

The report from workingmums.co.uk over a fifth of working mothers have been forced to vacate their jobs because flexible working was not available when asked for. 38% of new mums currently on maternity leave said they would not return to their jobs if flexible working wasn’t granted.

Plus, a separate survey from Timewise found that 14.1 million people, half the working population of the UK want more flexibility in their working hours. This is in response to the increasing demands of modern life, with childcare and looking after elderly and infirm parents and relatives, being just some of the reasons people are demanding more flexibility from their work.

Tensor employee management solutions deliver full support for flexible working

Tensor plc supplies an extensive range of workforce management solutions that cater for all the requirements of the modern workplace, including flexible working.

The system can supply working rules for a variety of purposes, from simple determination of overtime by the number of daily hours worked, to the more complex payment of overtime hours adjusted when periodic targets are not met. The system also contains special rules to accommodate the formal flexitime contracts worked by many public sector employees. Workers paid on an annual contract basis can receive reports stating how many contracted hours they have yet to work.

Additionally, our top-range WinTA suite features an On-line Self Service module that allows staff to clock IN or OUT, check hours, request leave + other functions via internet, mobile or other communications.

Furthermore, with the Telephone Clocking module, staff can call in from remote locations to clock IN or OUT or review their flexitime balance or remaining holiday entitlement. After entry of their pass code, an automated, spoken menu guides employees to the option they require.
