United Kingdom: BBC Flexible Working Policy guides the implementation of flexible working models

To facilitate the reconciliation of family and professional life media companies should offer media workers flexible working arrangements and set up frameworks guiding the implementation of such arrangements. The BBC Flexible Working Policy does this.


It sets a clear framework for the process of requesting and implementing appropriate arrangements that benefit both the employee and the employer.

The policy outlines several options for a flexible organization of working time and the place of work, including part-time working, flexitime, compressed working hours, remote working, career breaks or flexible retirement.
