READ my chapter in Flexible Work: Designing our Healthier Future Lives. Jonathan Swan and I look back over 30 years of flexible working and how expectations about what it can and should deliver have changed. We conclude that the flexible working revolution has not in fact delivered significant quality of life gains for workers. Where flexible working has succeeded, has been in supporting more women into paid employment. But the promised changes around enabling men and women to share care more equally, and of greater leisure or non-work time for all, have not come about. We have some suggestions, to deliver meaningful flex!
