Flexible Work Models

In Workforce

Organisations are implementing new work models to meet their talent and business requirements due to the race for talent. Furthermore, employees now expect new flexible work models. EY Flex Index can bridge that gap, helping you define the business case.

What EY can do for you

Even before the pandemic changed our perspective on remote working, firms were looking at more resilient working models. But now organisations need to realise the potential of flexibility to improve productivity and resilience whilst addressing individual needs. Utilising flexible work models is an effective way to build momentum and shift to new ways of thinking with employees at the centre.

There are a number of structural and cultural barriers preventing organisations from adopting flexible work models today. These may include:

Structural barriers

Cultural barriers

Restrictive policies

Lack of trust

Lack of enabling infrastructure

Culture of Presenteeism

Customer requirements

Misconceptions about what flexible work is

We can help identify your organisation’s structural and cultural barriers to flexibility and help define the business case of where your organisation can implement more flexible working models. We use innovative thinking, technology tools and human-centred design to help you determine which roles are best suited for flexible working.

Implementing a more flexible work model can:

  • Positively impact employee productivity, engagement levels, teaming, and well-being
  • Enable diverse leadership and increase representation across diverse groups
  • Build business resilience, and reduce costs from turnover, sick days and emergency leaves
  • Enhance your brand and reputation
  • Reduce costs

How EY Flex Index works:

  1. Employee perception, on how they work today, is captured.
  2. The data is analysed to determine the potential for increasing flexibility in where, when and how people work.
  3. You are provided with an ‘insights dashboard’ and a business case to inform decisions on which roles to prioritise for the new job design.
