This chart will take you through the different stages and methods of data collection, to help you find effective ways to measure, monitor and evaluate your flexible working practices.

At the end of the process, you should be able to identify the impact of flexible working on an organisational and individual level. This will help you accurately assess the impact of any flexible working initiatives and whether there has been a change to other measures such as absence rates or turnover.
