Requests from employees for all types of flexible working, and decisions to grant or refuse requests, are managed locally, and the information is not held centrally.

The department recognises the benefits that flexible working can bring and is committed to supporting a variety of flexible working arrangements. Managers are required to consider all requests for flexible working fairly and evenly and on their individual merits, taking account of the needs of the business and the team with those of the individual. It is the aim of BEIS to grant flexible working wherever possible.
