Supporting your leadership journey

Flexible working survey

06 June 2019


Working with the Inspiring Leaders Network, we surveyed more than 800 healthcare professionals across the UK on flexible and agile working, the largest of its kind. 

There is a global workforce crisis in healthcare. With not enough staff to meet rising demand, the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimate that by 2030 there will be a global shortage in healthcare of 18 million workers.

It is, therefore, no surprise that the biggest issue facing the NHS is workforce; staff recruitment, retention, training and support. We not only need to attract more people to work in health we also need a new and more radical approach to people management, with flexible and agile working a core element of this.
