Q2. Have there been any benefit of flexible working that has surprised you?
To be honest I am used to working flexibly in my role in other organisations for a number of years now: so the advantages of flexible working such as being able to concentrate, work on projects and cut down on the commute are well known to me and I think they have significant advantages for the Firm too.
Q3. How easy has it been to adapt to a work life balance?
I have found it both easy and welcome. It allows me to concentrate on the bigger projects I am working on and I appreciate the lack of distraction when my concentration is really needed.
Q4. What are the benefits of flexible working to you and your workplace?
I get to work at times which suit me and I avoid 4 hours travelling time each day I work form home as well as the associated expense. For the Firm, I am still available for all my meetings and for consultation as I am connected to everyone through technology. It also means I am able to deliver big projects on time as I get the quiet time to think .
