Flexible working is good for you, it seems.This report was covered this morning on BBC Breakfast. Most people would probably regard its contents as common sense. It's a well known fact that the more control you have over your life, the more content and positive you are likely to be and one of the main causes of depression and stress in the workplace is the lack of control over one's life. However, I had to smile at the comment from The Federation of Small Businesses that 'working from home did not suit industries such as retail or construction.'
I smiled to myself at the thought of a burly road digger looking out of his window and saying to his wife,
"Can't be bothered going in to work, today. I'll just dig a hole in our road instead. Ring the boss and tell him I'm working from home, will you, luv?"
