Young workers go “green” and push for “flexible working”

What a refreshing article I have just read…

According to the Telework Association “A new generation of green conscious workers is pushing for more flexible working measures”. Interesting?

If we have to wait for this government to make changes which lets face it, may take some time, then it is reassuring to hear our younger generation are contributing to a much needed cause.

Telework Association made this comment after CBI/Harvey Nash Employment Trends Survey showed that 96% of employers offer at least one form of flexible working. These flexible working options included part time working, flexi and term time working and job sharing. Would be great if businesses embraced all of them!

The organisation suggests that the younger generation deemed commuting as an “arduous” and “outdated habit”!

Peter Thomson, Director of Research at the Telework Association goes on to say, “This is a generation who are green conscious, who are taught environmental studies at school, and are quite rightly saying ‘Hang on – you, my parents’ generation, have polluted the planet. I’d like to do something about it, and let’s start with all this stupid travel that we’re doing’,”.

We live in hope…..
