CMI: Agile working study hints at end of the nine-to-five

The way we work and the way we think about work is changing. It’s a continual development that’s resulted in both employers and employees re-thinking the traditional nine-till-five.

And it’s a subject that was picked up by the Chartered Management Institute following the publication of our e-Book, The Agile Revolution? The Future of Work.

Using our findings, the CMI went on to further explore the ways in which agile working is no longer a concept merely linked to start-ups.

An increasing number of big businesses and councils are also taking a leaf out of the agile book in a bid to bring people, processes and technology together and increase productivity.

This focus on measuring outcomes rather than time spent in the office is being embraced by employees as well as employers.

In fact, only just over a third of working Britons (38%) now see the office as an essential base to work from.
