Despite expansion of the provision of flexible working arrangements since the year 2000, driven in part by the work-life balance agenda and implementation from 2003 of the Flexible Working Regulations, evidence continues to indicate significant gaps between availability and use of flexible working arrangements.This raises questions regarding the drivers of patterns of use, and of the relative benefit of these arrangements for employees. This research utilised data from the BHPS and Understanding Society for the period 2001 to 2010-11 to explore patterns of use of flexible working arrangements, the impacts of flexible working with regard to employee wellbeing, and whether patterns of use and wellbeing impacts differ between men and women.
