Report reveals cultural change regarding flexible working models

More and more companies are using flexible arrangements for managers to allow a better work-life balance. Even though it can still be quite difficult to reduce working hours, the report supported by CEC European Managers showcases a vast set of concrete practices for managers and companies to prepare for future requirements of the professional world.

At the occasion of the recently published (01.09.16) English version of the “Flexible working arrangements in leadership” report, the President of CEC European Managers, Ludger Ramme, highlights: “CEC European Managers supports all initiatives that make room for these new sensibilities, like the changes that current trends of demography and digitalisation will bring about. Flexibility of the organisation of work is a fundamental asset especially for managers.”

The report and guidelines have been developed with the contribution of the Berlin-based European Academy of Women in Business and Politics (EAF), which is one of the member organisations of the German CEC European Managers member, ULA. Through interviews and a quantitive study, EAF investigated the success factors for innovative working time models in economy and science and what kind of barriers still exist. “The case studies on German flexible working models also represent a valuable contribution to the debate on this issue on European level” Mr. Roland Leroux, President of ULA, concludes.
