The solution: job-sharing - two employees jointly delivering a full-time role.

 

The benefits:

Attract the very best talent

Attract the talent, and the smartest Gen Y minds (which your competitors are unable to access).

Retain your diverse talent and address your gender pay gap

40% of senior women (54,000 each year) leave work due to work|life balance challenges.

Increase productivity

by 30%

Two for the price of one

Sharers bring greater breadth of skills and experience than a single person can offer. (And for SMEs failing to get the maximum value from every salary you pay is a mistake.)

Lock down continuity

Sharers handover, so both are always up to speed. No days when a key member isn’t in the office to solve a problem or respond to a client, no dramas with holiday or illness.

Succession planning certainty

Pair people nearing retirement with those on the way up to have experienced and knowledgeable successors ready to go when the moment arises.

Commodify innovation

Sharers jointly tackling projects are more innovative and impactful.
