Research suggests that providing access to flexible working arrangements creates a more productive, creative, and inclusive workforce. However, those who choose to utilise such conditions are often met with negative repercussions.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy talks with Fay Calderone, partner at Hall & Wilcox, about the root causes of flexism in the workplace, the distinct gender issues in relation to access to flexible conditions, and how legal firms can go about implementing company policies to minimise adverse outcomes.
