WORKYOURWAY INSIDER VIEW

The Financial Times encourages flexibility in the workplace with a range of options such as job sharing and compressed weeks. Most recently they've rolled out specific paid leave to support colleagues experiencing menopause symptoms, menstrual or reproductive health issues, miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

What we love about the The Financial Times:

💡FT supports employees to fit a working pattern that fits around their schedule. 

💡FT do not take a one-size-fits-all approach and therefore have a variety of flexible working options that reflect this.

What's worth checking about The Financial Times: 

💡Flexibility options may differ by seniority.
