COVID-19 And The Future Of Flexible Working

It goes without saying, nobody could have predicted how 2020 turned out, but what lies ahead is even more uncertain… how can flexible working help?


Life Before COVID-19

Take yourself back to the beginning of 2020, and imagine I told you that in a couple of months time, the entire world would come to a standstill, you’d be forced to furlough your entire workforce, and adopt flexible working…you’d think I was crazy, right? 

Well unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened, and to make matters worse, financial experts have predicted another recession. The only thing that seems certain is that the future is uncertain; no one can predict how their business will look moving forward. Not only is this bad news for those struggling to make ends meet with the current furlough scheme, but it also brings a sense of dread to business owners who can’t guarantee their employees full-time hours. This is where having a flexible workforce comes into the equation. 

The Business Owner Predicament

As a business owner, you don’t want to promise employees hours that, if you’re having a slow trading day, you can’t afford to pay. On the other hand, you don’t want to reduce your workforce in anticipation of trading being slow, but it turning out to be busier than you could have ever hoped. Thankfully, Phavour’s thought of this way ahead of time, and has solved this problem with an on-demand workforce for those times when you could really do with some extra help.
