What is the Criterion for Successful Flexible Working Arrangements? An Analysis into Flexible Working Practices at PricewaterhouseCoopers UK (2012)

This MBA dissertation will critically analyse flexible working arrangements and assumptions in the UK, in an effort to understand how far work and life can reconcile to bring about benefit to both employer and employer, producing a ‘win-win’ situation. Incorporation of work and family responsibilities is a challenge faced by employees, in particularly parents and those in caring roles.

Employers are aware of this challenge but the question they ask is ‘how far can the organisation go to meet employees flexible work needs?’ Those who seek appropriate flexible work to suit their circumstances often find they are unable to do so. With the intensity of the modern society and the present economic need, this need has become critical and neither can be sacrificed for the other.

The study examines the position of the law on flexible work arrangement, the types of available flexible working arrangement, management issue on flexible working arrangement, effect of internal and external factors on flexible work arrangement, benefits of flexible working arrangements, gender issues and criteria for successful flexible work arrangement.
