Flexi-phobia: fear factor means one in five employees dare not ask about flexible working options, despite their legal right to do so
27 June 2017Over one in five (21%) UK private sector employees – equivalent to 5.5m nationally¹ – are too afraid to discuss flexible working with their boss because they think they will say no, Aviva’s Working Lives report shows. The findings come despite employees having the legal right to make a ‘statutory application’ to their employer to change their working pattern . Those aged 35-49 are the most likely to refrain from exercising this right despite the challenge some in this age group may face with juggling work and family life: nearly one in four (24%) shy away from starting a conversation for fear of rejection.
