Summary

Flexible Work: Designing Our Healthier Future Lives examines flexible working from a psychological perspective and presents research evidence from social science to address what forms of flexible working there are and how they are evolving. Bringing together views from thought-leaders, research evidence and recommendations around making flexible working work, this book addresses two of the most fundamental business challenges for large and medium organisations - mental health and productivity – calling for the bridging of science and policy to design flexible working for our future healthier lives.

Growing from these foundations, this book explains the latest landscape in flexible working, looking at employee psychological health and productivity, including showing up for work sick. Academics and thought-leaders from around the world provide perspectives on leadership, line management, ‘over attachment’ with technology, commuting, skill-based inequality and control over working time. Readers are offered insights into the relevance of flexible working for a diverse workforce – invisible disabilities, disabilities, older workers and blended families. Throughout, the book offers suggestions for shaping future policy, practice and research.

Each chapter concludes with recommendations, making this essential reading for students, academics, HR practitioners, policy-influencers, policymakers and professionals interested in flexible work.
