‘Agile working’ has become a heavily-used buzzword but what does it actually mean and what does it look like in practice?

Our specially commissioned e-Book, The Agile Revolution? The Future of Work explores the concept in detail.

As mentioned by HR Magazine, “67% of agile businesses report significant boosts in productivity – up to 10% in some cases – while 10% reported a 20% increase in productivity since adopting agile working.”

Meanwhile, 84% of agile businesses reported that it was easier to hire skilled staff by adopting this approach.

Those findings are based on responses from 1,250 senior decision makers across a variety of industries, and a cross-section of full-time or part-time employees. 

BPS World CEO Simon Conington was also canvassed for his opinion. He added weight to the agile debate by explaining the unexpected benefits of the concept to employers.
