This report considers how organisations are managing flexible working following an employee's return to work after taking an extended period of leave for parental/caring responsibilities, and how organisations are then supporting people who work flexibly to maintain their career development, considering factors which may contribute to the gender pay gap.

The methodology adopted for the study comprised a purposive evidence review, coupled with a series of case studies.
