Annotation "Flexible working enables your business to respond cost effectively to peaks and troughs in demand and helps you to attract and retain the best staff. When it works it can make your organisation more efficient and make your employees happier and more loyal." "Unfortunately, introducing a flexible working system can be extremely difficult; rumours spread, line managers object, some employees feel resentful, others expect the impossible." "Using case studies from leading organisations and many practical tools, John Stredwick and Steve Ellis show you how to tailor a policy that is right for your organisation, make the business case, win over the doubters and implement and manage a system that will provide genuine competitive advantage for your organisation."--BOOK JACKET.
