JOIN THE MOVEMENT
We live in an age where technology has irrevocably changed the way we work, yet too many parents are still forced into having to choose between a fulfilling career OR being there for their children. In the year 2016 it’s past time that we made another way widely available, an opportunity for more mums to have both a fulfilling career and to be there for their children. Forget 9 to 5, rigid structure and presenteeism. If more people embrace a newer and more effective culture of working, then everyone benefits. #WorkThatWorks is about more flexibility at work, happier employees, less wasted talent, increased productivity, thriving businesses and the positive impacts these have on the economy.
What is #WorkThatWorks?
How you can join The #WorkThatWorks Movement
Inflexible, office-based work can be uninspiring and constraining for anyone. For mums, it’s bigger than that. 54,000 women every year are forced out of their jobs because of being pregnant. A disproportionate number of women hit a ceiling when they have kids. Lower-skilled jobs are taken, career progression is halted and a lack of diversity is the result. If we genuinely want to be a fair and equal society, and want to avoid stigmatising an entire demographic, embracing #WorkThatWorks is the only way forward. And it’s not just about mums - 83% of businesses that have adopted flexible working practices say it's resulted in improvements in productivity.
Stand up with us at Digital Mums and show your support for flexible working and The #WorkThatWorks Movement. It's time for a serious cultural change to the way that we work in Britain for the good of mums, businesses and the economy as a whole.
We'll send you more info on what we're up to during #WorkThatWorks week starting on September 26th. Over time we'll send tips on how you can make #WorkThatWorks a reality, showcase the businesses making it work for them and much more. We're starting small but this is the beginning of something much bigger.
