The second annual survey from jobsite Workingmums.co.uk has found that women who ask about flexible working before they go on maternity leave are likely to get it. However, a large percentage of women are still not making that request.
The survey of over 1,100 respondents found that:
- 57% of mothers who discussed the possibility of flexible working either got what they wanted or were able to reach a compromise with their employers
- 70% of these mothers felt that their job ranged from flexible to extremely flexible
