CBI hails London firms' Olympics flexible working plans
A wide range of companies in London are preparing for the upcoming Olympics by implementing more thorough flexible working policies.
That is according to Sara Parker, London director for the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), who noted that a lot of bosses have realised the need to be fluid in terms of their professional practices when the event is on.
"It's encouraging that many firms are already thinking about flexible working during the Games," she noted.
The start of the Olympics is now just one month away and in order to mark this occasion, the CBI has today (June 27th) released new research that highlights the fact that the vast majority of companies are feeling positive about the proceedings.
For instance, 92 per cent of those organisations questioned indicated they believe the Games will help promote London's reputation globally.
Meanwhile, 37 per cent believe they are now in a position to effectively deal with the logistical and transport issues the Olympics could pose to their business.
