For immediate release

A bouquet for National at election time – the right to request flexible work for all workers.

The New Zealand Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW NZ) is delighted that all workers will soon be able to request flexible work time.

“We are pleased that the Government has made a u-turn from their original stance, and not only supporting the legislation but now pledging to extend it” says President, Carolyn Savage.

“As one of the members of the Quality Flexible Work Coalition that lobbied for the original bill drafted by Sue Kedgley, we’d like to offer a bouquet to the Government.

“A bouquet for doing what we have always said needs to be done”

New Zealand businesses need the right to request flexible work – for improved staff engagement, productivity and performance. New Zealand needs this – for our social and economic well-being. Improving our work/life balance makes New Zealand a more attractive place to live; quality flexible work legislation will be our point of difference in attracting skilled workers, new businesses and ethical business investment.

“All of this leads to an increase in our economic performance. And we all want that.”
