Flexible Work: Designing Our Healthier Future Lives examines flexible working through the lens of social science, in particular using psychological perspective to address not only what forms of flexible working there are and how they are evolving but also their prospect in the future of work. Bringing together views from thought-leaders and underpinned by research evidence, 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. Perspectives are provided from around the world 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, human resource practitioners, policy-influencers, policymakers and professionals interested in flexible work.



'We all want happier, healthier and more productive working lives and two-way flexibility is a key part of the answer. A driving force in this book is the compelling argument around how we make flexible working work to give workers more control over where and how they work. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to build better, fairer and more humane workplaces.' - Frances O'Grady, General Secretary, Trades Union Congress (TUC), UK

'Disruptive changes in the nature of work and of working life have far-reaching implications for human and economic health and wellbeing across society. This book provides essential foundations for wise and well-informed discussions to guide the actions now necessary.' - Professor Dame Carol Black, Advisor on Health and Work to Public Health England and UK National Health Service Improvement
