Power List: what it’s all about

The Timewise Power 50 awards are our annual celebration of the people and places who make a success of flexible working.

Senior part-timers

When we launched the first Timewise Power 50 in 2012, today’s rules didn’t apply. The right to ask to work flexibly only applied to parents and carers, and attitudes towards those who did it were far less positive. And when senior people did work flexibly, they often did so under the radar.

And now? It feels as if flexible working has hit its stride. New data has revealed that over one million bosses now work part-time. Traditionally less flexible industries are exploring the potential of flexible working to help them find and keep talented people. And working flexibly is, at last, something senior people are happy to shout about.

Of course, this doesn’t mean our work is done. The supply of flexible roles still lags well behind demand, and we’d love to see more senior roles at or under three days a week. But as this year’s winners clearly show, we’ve come a long way.
