Bringing research to life
Emerald Publishing is one of the world's leading digital-first publishers, commissioning, curating and showcasing research that can bring about real change. We work with thousands of universities and business schools across the world, to share knowledge and provoke the kind of debate that leads to positive change.
The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility
First we assess the flexibility options Emerald Publishing provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Emerald Publishing is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.
We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

I like the confidence and autonomy I have to deliver my work regardless of the hour I work. This makes it much easier for people who work with time zones and assist clients in several countries.
