Statistics from CIPD in 2019 showed that 54% of workers had the option to work outside of the standard 9 to 5 office hours. (Ann Swain, TheHRDirector, 2019).

An article by The Independent reported that in a study conducted of the benefits UK employees wanted their Employers to offer, more than half of the people surveyed wanted a better work-life balance and wanted their workplace to offer more flexible working. (Emma Elsworthy, The Independent, 2019).
