How Lynn is building a better working world

“I am EY’s partner sponsor of Timewise, a consultancy which champions flexible working within UK businesses.
At EY, we know from first-hand experience that a diverse workforce operating in an inclusive environment; where difference is valued and embraced, makes for better business performance and happier, more engaged employees. It is a commercial imperative that grants us a competitive advantage. The best businesses embrace flexible working, not only to keep attracting the best and brightest talent, but genuinely because that's where we're heading as a working society. As long as the work is done to a high standard, the pattern of those hours should make no difference.”
