Adopting a FLEX Approach

Want to attract and retain talent and improve productivity?

Become a FLEX Employer

Flexible working, enhanced parental leave, and additional childcare provision enable more equal sharing of work and childcare between men and women so that both can fulfil their potential at work.

Belina GRoW have launched a new programme to help employers adopt a FLEX approach and influence policy around the subject.  We are providing free resources to help you create your own FLEX Policy and to help you assess each new job before you advertise it. You can download our free policy templates and resources below:

The FLEX programme is funded by Mayor of London, 3SC and European Social Fund and follows the Mayor’s Good Work Standard which brings together best employment practice and links to resources and support from across London to help employers improve their organisations. The initiative has been developed in collaboration with London’s employers, trade unions, professional bodies and experts.

The Good Work Standard sets the benchmark the Mayor wants every London employer to work towards and achieve. Organisations able to meet the Good Work Standard criteria can apply for accreditation and recognition as leading employers from the Mayor.
