Flexible working – is it an option in PR and Comms Agencies? If not, why not?

I was surprised to read in a recent BBC news article that only 6% of people in the UK now work the traditional workplace hours of 9am-5pm.  A YouGov survey polling 4,000 adults found that almost half of them work flexibly, allowing them to juggle other commitments.  This rather impressive statistic made me wonder just how well (or not) the PR and Corporate Communications industry fares in the flexible working stakes. 

According to our Annual Salary Guide 2017/18, 33% of employers in the industry do not offer any flexibility around working hours.  Yet 80% of respondents (both men and women across in-house and agencies) rated flexibility around start/finish time as important or extremely important.   This clearly suggests that many employers in the industry are missing a trick.
