Flexible working forms a crucial part of creating modern and inclusive employment practices and more action is needed to increase the uptake of flexible working across the NHS, to recruit and retain diverse talent and ensure that the NHS is an employer of choice.
Following employer engagement, we have identified nine enablers to flexible working, highlighted in this infographic.
Use this resource to help focus your conversations on flexible working.
Find out more about each of the enablers and access practical guidance, tips and relevant examples of best practice in our flexible working for nursing guide.
Our work on retention has been commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Department of Health and Social Care to support employer organisations to improve their offer of flexibility for the nursing workforce.
