Discussing Flexible Working With Candidates
Flexible working is in-demand, on offer from competing employers, and an important topic in any inclusive hiring process. Our expert guide is here to help interviewers answer candidate questions about flexible working with complete confidence:
- Gain a clear understanding of flexible working, including how it contributes to a company’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.
- Anticipate candidate questions with data and insights around the wants and needs of women and marginalized groups.
- Feel confident in your knowledge of your company’s offering, including how it compares to competing employers right now.

Confusion around your company’s stance on flexible working or how it applies to particular roles can cause both a poor candidate experience and unhappy hires. But, get it right, and flexible working discussions can help create an inclusive hiring process that attracts and retains a truly diverse workforce.
