Jason Downes, founder of the Smarter Working Initiative, said: “Our aim is to show companies that smarter working has an incredibly positive impact on employees and employers alike – a healthy workforce is one which finds a balance between work and daily life.

“Our research has shown smarter working results in increased productivity and morale – understanding these business benefits is the first step towards making a change in workplace culture, so we’re encouraging businesses to sign up and embrace flexible working for one day, with the goal of creating a new, more agile approach to work.”
