Last month, Maree Mamo, AGL’s General Manager, Customer Digital & Data, was featured in a Mamamia article about flexible working. As a champion for flexible working, Maree shared her tips on how to negotiate a flexible working week.
Maree’s advice covers: doing your homework; knowing your value; knowing what you want and asking for it; raising the topic early in interviews and negotiations; being open to different solutions; and helping your employer to trust you. Maree also discusses the importance being clear about how the flexible working arrangement will work from both sides once you're on the job..
AGL recognises how important it is for people to balance their work and personal commitments in a way that enhances their wellbeing and meets the needs of the business. As part of our commitment to build a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace culture, in FY16 we launched a strategy to create a workplace where working flexibly is the norm, and not the exception. This means that flexibility, in some form, can be considered for all new and existing roles. For more information on our approach to working flexibly, visit our Sustainability Report.
