Workhorse Joins Discussion Panel on Flexible Working for the 21st Century

What are the real benefits of true flexible working to support business growth in the 21stcentury?  Workhorse’s Head of Marketing, Alison Prangnell, will be joining a panel to debate exactly this at the Spring Forward Festival in Brighton this March.

Workhorse business management software is inspired by enabling SMEs to do business better in the 21stcentury, from changing systems and processes but also how we work together within business.  As a business, Workhorse walks-the-talk, employing fully flexible workers in its growing team and to support business expansion.

Head of Marketing and flexible worker, Alison Prangnell, will be joining Emma Cleary from Flexibility Matters and a panel of female entrepreneurs in the digital space to discuss how flexible working brings tangible benefits for business.

Many businesses talk about employee flexible working but few adopt it to its full extent.  The panel will discuss the opportunities that they are missing.  Direct experience at Workhorse has not only given its employees a better work-life balance but the flexible practice is delivering higher motivation, collaboration and productivity, even though some of the team are only working part-time.

“Flexible working has been a powerful growth enabler at Workhorse”, commented Alison, “Personally, I have never worked in a more motivated and engaged team.  For me my drive is improved as I can both work and live how it’s best for me and how I get most value and enjoyment.  I have a set number of hours to work per week but fulfil them as it works for me.  This has enabled me to fit in other passions such as working with organisations to minimise stress and riding my horse.  I am more motivated now that at any time in my working life.”

 As a part of the Spring Forward event in Brighton, this panel spurs a debate about how flexibility really matters and how women can benefit and drive real change in the sector. Led by Emma Cleary, the debate panel will include; Catrina Bassett-Baker, Projects Director at DabApps, one of Brighton’s leading software agencies; Rebecca Kimber, CEO of Create, a Brighton based tech company that has been offering a flexible working scheme for the last 10 years and Candice Underwood, Project Manager/Digital Account Manager at Liquid Light and part-time musician.
