Job design masterclass – for HR practitioners and people managers

Are you struggling to make flexibility work in practice? 

Maybe you have a hybrid working policy but people complain they come to the office and no-one is there or they come to the office and sit on teams calls all day? 

Do you find your managers aren’t willing to consider part-time employees because they can’t see how the work can be done in less than full-time hours?

Maybe you feel that there’s no opportunities for flex in your shift-based or frontline roles?

We’re seeing increasing demand for and availability of flexible work, but in many cases a lack of understanding of how to design effective flexible roles. This workshop will equip your HR teams or people managers with the critical flexible job design skills needed to futureproof your organisation.

This Timewise workshop is designed for HR practitioners and people managers to better understand and feel confident in implementing flexible job design to unlock your organisational and people potential.  

I really liked the breakdown of the different types of flexible working and ideas on what to consider when designing flexible jobs for my team.

What do we mean by flexible job design? 

  • Understanding the full range of ways to work flexibly 
  • Identifying key outcomes and critical success factors for job roles 
  • Matching outcomes to ways of working  
  • Analysing where, when and how the role can be carried out more flexibly 

Timewise are the UK’s leading experts in flexible job design and flexible working across public and private sector in both front-line and office-based roles.

I have gained a much greater understanding as to how to enable managers to introduce and/or extend flexible working within their clinical area.
