A research study into the UK workforce: who wants flexibility, for what reasons, and how much it matters to them.
Flexible working means different things to different people. Our research focuses on the following types of flexibility, which are generally seen as favourable for the employee:
Our respondents included full-time workers who might be working flexibly now (or not), and may have told us they would prefer to work part-time or to work full-time but with flexibility in their working pattern.

THE NEED TO OFFER FLEXIBLE WORKING IN THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS
Timewise commissioned the survey from ComRes, who interviewed 3,001 UK adults online between 13th and 26th June 2017. Within these sub-samples: 1,250 full-time employees; 750 part-time employees; 500 self-employed people; 501 people who were not working but wanted to work. All participants were aged 18+. The data for full-time employees and for part time employees was weighted to be representative of the UK working population for those employment types; other data were unweighted.
