Vox pop: Can agencies make a success of flexible working?
Our HR Director, Jackie Thompson featured in The Drum discussing, can agencies make a success of flexible working?
Flexible working for us is about finding a way for the needs of the business and our team’s personal priorities to blend successfully.
Mums and dads obviously want to spend time with their children. That’s a no brainer. Others in our team are doing university courses or pursuing a passion project, so work a variety of working patterns. At the core of this is a belief that it doesn’t matter to us where and when the piece of work is done, as long as it is brilliant and on time.
We call ourselves the JamFam which means that whether the chips are up or down, we have each other’s back. Part of that is our commitment to nurture and develop people, regardless of role or experience, to be the best they can be. The 9 to 5 doesn’t work for all, so we personalise.
