The investment and savings profession is a vital social function for the economy, employing more than 90,000 people investing £5.7 trillion and servicing over half the population through pension savings and insurance products. Improving opportunities for flexible working is increasingly shown to be one of the key enablers to achieving more inclusive workplaces.
The objective of the session was to share most recent industry findings on what cultural and operational barriers exist and to help identify how we can unlock more roles to flexibility, what specific actions could be taken by the industry to overcome these, and how to test and share solutions.
