A People Management article states a study outlining the positive benefits of flexible working has found that more than a third of flexible workers have seen an improvement in their mental health, as experts warned against the impact of negative attitudes from management towards the topic.
The anonymous survey of employees from 115 companies, conducted by Wildgoose, discovered that 39 per cent of those who worked flexibly had benefited from better mental health.
It also found that 43 per cent who did not have the option of flexible working felt it would enable them to better manage their mental health.
Almost one in seven (69 per cent) respondents felt flexible working helped them maintain a work-life balance. The same proportion of those not currently working flexibly said it would make them more productive.
