Businesses in the Channel Islands are being encouraged to consider the benefits of flexible working for their employees.
Currently, there are no laws on flexible working in Guernsey, except for those surrounding parental rights.
However, Jersey does have legislation, which gives all employees the right to ask for more open working conditions.
One expert based in Guernsey says, despite there being no similar law there, local businesses still offer their workers flexible hours as it can be beneficial to both parties.
The advice comes as a UK poll reveals 73% of office workers expect that flexible working will become "the norm" over the next five years.
