UK bosses to grant employees the flexibility to watch matches from the Rugby World Cup


Tensor time and attendance systems for absence monitoring

Nearly three-quarters (73%) of UK firms will allow employees the flexibility to watch matches from the 2015 Rugby World Cup according to new research from recruitment specialists Robert Half UK.

Of the companies deciding to offer employees this type of perks, more than one in five (22%) will always offer flexi-time or early finishes to watch the game. The study also suggested that companies that embrace ‘RWC 2015’ are expected to generate significant benefits, more than half (54%) of HR directors believing Rugby World Cup themed activities in the workplace will have a positive impact on employee morale.

In terms of regional breakdown, employers in London are the most accommodating when it comes allowing workers time off to watch RWC 2015, with almost a third (30%) of employers set to allow flexi-time or early finishes for all employees, while firms in the Midlands are overall the least accommodating when it comes to allowing employees to watch the sporting action.

“Companies increasingly recognise that allowing employees flexibility has a positive effect on morale and also productivity,” says Phil Sheridan, UK Managing Director of Robert Half, “In the growing war to attract talent, employers who are seen to be providing their employees with autonomy and rewarding their staff will be more attractive to potential candidates.”
