The balance between life and work is becoming increasingly difficult, both for employers and employees. Traditional ways of working are no longer flexible enough to meet the pressures on people’s time, skills shortage, changing populations and the demands of customers.
Local government employers recognise these pressures and have policies in place to address these issues by offering more flexible working, so no matter what your circumstances you should be able to find an option that allows you to pursue your career alongside other commitments. The following are just some of the options that may be available from a local government employer to help you achieve the right work-life balance.
- Part time
- Flexi time
- Job share
- Home working
- Flexible shift patterns
Keeping you happy is good for business
Local government employers believe that keeping everyone happy is good for business and recognise that this sometimes means being more flexible. They understand that employees have to be able to accommodate the needs of their families with those of their employer.
Work-life balance is central to local governments’ core values and is designed to take account of all relevant parties’ needs when developing business plans.
