Budgeting can be a dirty word for small businesses, with many owners claiming they don’t have the time or the resources to do it properly. But SME budgets should be relatively quick and easy to set, and the benefits far outweigh any time and money spent
BBC News Report - 16th July 2019 Flexible working should be the default position for all employees, rather than it being up to individuals to request. That is the call from Conservative MP Helen Whately, who introduced a flexible working bill in Parliament on Tuesday 16th July 2019. It would help close the gender pay gap, assist parents to share childcare, and help businesses keep staff, she said. Anna Whitehouse, founder of the campaign Flex Appeal, said it was "a huge moment". Ms Whately's Ten Minute Rule Bill was given approval to go to a second reading on Wednesday. 'Entrenched assumptions' Introducing her bill, she argued that unless employers had a sound business reason for having specific working hours, firms should introduce flexibility to every job. "The 40-hour, five-day working week made sense in an era of single-earner households and stay-at-home mums, but it no longer reflects the reality of how many modern families want to live their lives," she said.
