New flexible working package launched targeting Bleisure guestsAs the government extends its flexible working law to all UK employees – meaning anyone will now have the right to request working from home or flexible hours - QHotels has introduced its own Flexible Working package, recognising the changing requirements of guests travelling for business or leisure.
Although bleisure has been an industry buzzword for the last couple of years, no company in the sector has successfully launched a dedicated service to it. QHotels’ Flexible Working package is the first of its kind, offering business travellers the chance to have their family join them free of charge.
Getting the right balance between work and leisure is important to a person’s well-being. In a survey conducted by YouGov over three-quarters (76%) of adults in the UK reported that having a good work-life balance was an important indicator of a good employer.
Commenting on the new approach to business travel and family time, Claire Rowland, Marketing Director at QHotels said: “We live in a digital world where we are always on, 24/7, 365 days a year. For a lot of us this means constantly being connected to the office, thus removing the need to work traditional hours in a traditional environment. As a result, we are becoming more experimental in our working behaviour.
“It is becoming increasingly acceptable to blend business and leisure, whether it’s through companies relaxing the rules on allowing casual clothing everyday or inviting your family to join you on a business trip.”
“We know many businesses are keen to advocate a better work/life balance for their employees. By launching this initiative, we hope to facilitate companies in providing employees with quality time with their families.
“Everything we do at QHotels is with the guest in mind and launching an innovative package like this, demonstrates our commitment to recognising and delivering to guests needs. This guest first approach is why QHotels has been named the UK’s best hotel chain by independent watchdog Which?”
QHotels demonstrated how committed it is to putting guests first, by investing £1.7 million in its IT system to offer free Wi-Fi internet access in all public areas of the hotel and in every bedroom. They are also the first hotel group in the UK to offer up to 90 Mbps of dedicated bandwidth.
