Flexible Working

Breaking out of working for a big firm and setting up your own start-up allows for agile teams and more flexible working.

The ability to work flexibly is for some, a bigger draw than a salary, giving them a better work life balance.  Creating agile teams, is a great way of empowering people to be able to work how and where best suits their circumstances.  Office costs are less and team productivity increases, enabled by the use of technology and collaborative working tools.
