Message from the Research Sponsors:

In these challenging economic times, it is more important than ever for companies to draw on the best possible talent to compete and grow. Recruitment, retention and advancement of women is a business imperative and we are committed to creating an environment that enables both men and women to thrive and succeed.

We understand that, for some, the ability to work part-time can mean the difference between remaining and progressing in their career and leaving. This project has explored the feasibility of job sharing as a commercially viable solution to enable part-time working in business-critical roles whilst maintaining an excellent level of customer service. This project brings together both research and comprehensive guidelines, and provides both individuals and organisations with some very practical steps.

We are all delighted to be supporting The Job Share Project and encourage others to follow suit.
