Power List: what it’s all about

With flexible working now firmly on most agendas, our 2021 Power List seeks to highlight real innovation and overcome the next big barrier: the lack of flexibly advertised jobs. Nominations are now closed and the winners will be announced here in March 2021

When we started out with the Power List in 2012, senior flexible success was only really happening under the radar. Eight years and over 400 winners later, it’s much higher on companies’ agendas – but the flexible jobs market hasn’t shifted to match. In fact, our most recent Flexible Jobs Index showed that only 15% of jobs are advertised with flexible options.

So while it’s brilliant that more people are being empowered to work flexibly by their current boss, they’re being failed by a jobs market that leaves them with few flexible next steps. The 2021 Power List is designed to increase the pace of change, by highlighting the people and places who are doing it right

By telling the stories of the employees and companies on this year’s list, we’ll be showing that it is possible to be hired, or promoted, into a part-time role. And we’ll be proving that it is worth taking an innovative approach to designing flexible jobs, and offering them at the point of hire.

The deadline for nominations has passed, so it’s now up to our judges to make some tough decisions about who to include. We’re looking forward to revealing the 2021 Power List in March 2021.
