the future is flex

I am delighted to be representing Ten2Two, as local market leaders in flexible recruitment, on Thursday 13th September from 7.30-10pm at Fletcher’s Lea, Ware Priory, Hertfordshire  for an evening to discuss all about the future of flexible working featuring a panel of inspirational women and thought leaders, who are leading the charge for change.

Research shows that 84% of men and 91% of women currently in employment WANT to work flexibly with this demand falling mainly in the 18-34year old age bracket. Of those not currently employed 93% would seek a role which offers flexibility. 

Flexible working IS THE FUTURE. In this very special event we will be discussing flexible working from a government, employer and employee perspective. Learn about what the future holds for the workplace and what YOU can do to secure a more flexible way of working, getting rid of the old 9-5.

Whether you are a mum on maternity leave, or looking to return to work after a career break, or already in full time employment but just want a better work/life balance and less stress over commuting and astronomical childcare costs this is a must-attend event.

On the panel:

Anna Whitehouse, Mother Pukka
Mother, author, journalist, freelancer and founder of the flex appeal movement. Anna has been campaigning hard for flexible working for one and all since 2015. No panel on the future of flex would be complete without her!

Eleanor Denton, Flexible Working Mums Hertford, Panel Chair.
Eleanor is the founder of Flexible Working Mums Hertford, raising awareness and celebrating local flexible working success. She has 20 years experience in Senior HR management and now works flexibly as a HR and Social Media Consultant aimed at supporting small businesses and start-ups.

Ursula Tavender, Mumbelievable
Ursula consults with businesses to develop innovative solutions that increase support and flexibility for working parents and carers, enable more people to remain and progress at work and close the gender pay gap.

Deb Khan, She’s Back
Co-founder of She’s Back – helping businesses access the untapped potential of women who left work and are looking to return to the workplace. Deb has over 20 years experience in affecting change and growth across a massive range of businesses in many sectors.

Liese Lord, The Lightbulb Tree
Liese is the founder of The Lightbulb Tree, working with businesses to change the way of work for all, and for the better. Her vision is for a world where having the choice over where, when and how you work is ‘just the way it is’
