Heroes, not slackers

Alison Maitland's picture

Great piece by Andrew Hill in today's FT titled "Flexiworkers are heroes, not slackers", on how the Olympics are testing managers' traditional assumptions about how work gets done. As he rightly says, managers' fears about losing control, and employees' (directly related) fears about being seen as slackers, are holding back the spread of new working practices. This is usually to the detriment of business.
