A lack of flexible work has traditionally been considered one of the biggest barriers for women pursuing a career in public transport, particularly for women with carer responsibilities. To combat this, Transdev has made flexible work options available to all employees, including frontline teams.
Transdev created a FlexWork toolkit to provide a framework for managers and staff to collaborate to create suitable flexible work agreements that meet the needs of employees, teams and the business. This empowers employees to better balance their work and personal commitments, increasing wellbeing at work.
The toolkit includes the following elements:
- A Workplace Flexibility Policy to provide information about flexible working and the requirements for establishing flexible work arrangements
- A flex meeting form, providing a guide to support conversations about establishing flexible work agreements
- Guides for team managers and team members to support the successful implementation of flexible work agreements
