Founder of Polar Insight James Tattersfield shares the latest research on work flexibility in a Portuguese context and how it represents the future of work – as part of Lisbon Entrepreneurship Week promoted by Made of Lisboa.

The talk will be followed by a panel discussion with Executive Director at StartupLisboa Miguel Fontes, Employer Branding expert at Talenter Rita Duarte, Talent Manager at BLIP Sara de Sousa and Facilities Project Manager at Nestlé Alexis Pinheiro, facilitated by Corporate Wellness Senior Project Manager Regina Cruz.

FLEX looks at discrepancies between the expectations of workers in Portugal and the reality of flexible work. It aims to find out just how flexible work is in the Portuguese labour market, the elements that influence this, and how this affects the adoption of flexible working in practice.
