Diversity in Direct Sourcing: The Untapped Market by Mandy Garner |, 7 June 2013 [cached]
BT's director for strategy and portfolio Olivia Garfield was recently named one of the 100 Women to Watch by the prestigious Cranfield School of Management. She says she left her first consultancy job because it didn't offer the work life balance she needed. She consciously chose BT because of its work life balance policies and because it allowed senior managers to work flexibly. She had a few years to build her reputation before she had her two children and now works flexible hours across the week. She gets into work early most days and logs on from home most evenings, but has one day a week when she leaves at 2.30pm so she can spend time with her young children.
As a company which prides itself on being at the cutting edge of technology, she says BT can do nothing less than promote mobile and flexible working. "You don't have to convince people that mobile working works here," she says.
