HR insights and more

2020 has brought with it many new challenges for businesses. Come January 22nd, 2021, the panel of expert speakers will address these challenges and much more. They’ll cover everything from planning for the year ahead to implementing effective communication and performance management strategies. Flexible working requests and in particular, remote working, will be a central focus of these areas.

Flexible working

With an EU Directive on flexible working scheduled to be transposed into Irish law in 2022, parents and carers will soon have a legal right to request flexible work arrangements. Likewise, with COVID-19, many employees have had a taste of remote working and expressed an interest in a more blended work model between home and the workplace.

Bearing all this in mind, now is a good time to consider the benefits of a more flexible working environment and being prepared for the impending legal right to request flexible working.

  • Guidance on handling flexible working requests.
