Episode 57 - Emotion at Work in Flexible Working

In this episode, I interview Krystal Wilkinson who is a researcher, practitioner, and senior lecturer at the Manchester Metropolitan University


Krystal joins me to discuss flexible working; a very topical and relevant practice which surrounds the present landscape of work. Krystal is keen to challenge the narrative that often sits around flexible working and the preconceived perceptions that many organisations and individual’s hold towards who should be eligible. We look at some of the normative assumptions in organisations around who qualifies for flexible-working, before discussing some of the work-life challenges and dilemmas which are identified and discussed in Krystal’s research.
