Olympics Fosters Flexible Work Schedules

OlymFrom PJH Law:

An interesting legacy of the Olympic Games may involve London working practices.  Many employers, during the period of the Games, embraced flexible working practices to allow employees to watch the Games and to avoid problems travelling to and from work. London law firms were amongst these.  Such practices proved to be so successful that the Law Society are now encouraging law firms to adopt flexible working practices beyond the Games and have produced a protocol to assist firms.  This includes practical advice, checklists and case studies demonstrating the business benefits and may be of interest to any employers (not just law firms) thinking of adopting such practices.  This may not have been a legacy originally envisaged by Team Coe/Beckham etc but will be of significant impact nonetheless.
