Welcome to Flexibase, the UK’s first database that allows candidates to find an organisation's approach to flexible working.

Welcome to Flexibase, the UK’s first platform that gives businesses the ability to be transparent with candidates about their approach to flexible working, created in partnership with Flex Appeal and leading D&I consultancy, Included.
As a job seeker, it’s incredibly difficult to find an organisation's approach to flexible working. 68% of companies in the UK don’t outwardly publicise their flexibility, yet 98% of individuals are in favour of employers publishing their flexible working policies (Gov, 2021). Transparency isn’t just key for candidates; 59% of businesses felt that improving the transparency of this information would ensure job applicants can make informed choices regarding employment (Gov, 2021). Our goal is to change this lack of transparency between organisations and candidates.
In partnership with Flex Appeal and leading D&I consultancy Included, we’ve created Flexibase, a tool that allows organisations to outwardly publicise their approach to flexible working and their core options. Flexibase gives candidates the ability to find an organisation that fits their flexible working needs.

We’ve used a unique flexible working methodology to give individuals the vital information they need when searching for a new role and organisation. Our framework, developed in collaboration with Flex Appeal, is split into four key sub-groups: Working Patterns, Workload, Workplace and Life Events.

We’ve used a unique flexible working methodology to give individuals the vital information they need when searching for a new role and organisation. Our framework, developed in collaboration with Flex Appeal, is split into four key sub-groups: Working Patterns, Workload, Workplace and Life Events.
01. Working Patterns: these refer to how your contractual hours are split across the days of your working week. For example, patterns include part-time, term-time, annualised hours, flexi-time & more.
02. Workload: the amount of work assigned to or expected from a worker in a specified time period. For example an organisation may offer reduced hours or commissioned outcomes.
03. Workplace: the location where someone works for their employer. There are three core flexible workplace options: hybrid working (office / home), remote or mobile working and work from home.
04. Life Event: this usually refers to a significant event in an individual's life, which can include events such as shared parental leave, career breaks / sabbaticals.
Our ambition and goal is to provide a flexible working database of all businesses in the UK that have 250+ employees across all sectors, including finance, technology, construction, retail, IT, health, education & more. At present, there are over 8,000 businesses in the UK with 250+ employees. While our research will be focused on larger organisations, the platform is available to all businesses regardless of size. Please contact us, if you’d like to be featured or involved with Flexibase.

Flexibase not only provides transparency between candidates and organisations, it sets an industry standard framework for business to implement when developing their own approach to flexible working.

“For so long we’ve been lobbying government to change the current flexible working policy to ‘flex from day one for everyone’. To be able to work with a platform like Flexibase that creates cultural change is huge. WorkYourWay could bypass the sluggish shift we are seeing in shifting the way we work. It’s not simply about where people work but who you include at the table. Here’s to a more flexible future where everyone can truly work in their own way.”

Anna Whitehouse, Mother Pukka & Founder of Flex Appeal
