Allow all people to work flexibly if they want to

Strengthen all people’s rights to protect flexible working

Why is this important?

For generations and generations, the number of options around the way we work have been few and far between. But one of the few things the pandemic did, was to prove that lots of jobs can be done from home. Some people might love working from home, while others might work best in a busy office environment. But what's important is the right to choose and decide what is best for you.

A Government task force has been put together and they are calling for all businesses regardless of the pandemic, to grant workers the flexibility to choose where and how they work. Right now, the Government is weighing up their options and deciding what to do next, and they’re due to make an announcement in just a few weeks.

A huge petition could push the Government to give people the flexibility they need.

Reasons for signing

  • It's about time the "United" Kingdom's approach to work/life balance was shook up (until its teeth rattle, for preference), despite a lot of our glorious "leaders" still seeming to think WW1 is still on/Victoria is still on the throne/serfdom is still acceptable!
  • There are many benefits from opting for flexible work from home/office/home. One of the most important but never mentioned, is the huge savings in crude oil imports, which get wasted in the daily traffic commutes all over the UK; and the positive impact that has on the environment.
  • I have a two hour commute just to get to my office and I had very little downtime during the working week and my weekend was spent recovering from the week. Cutting that out can only be a good thing.
