New data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics reveal Australians are working the lowest weekly number of hours in over 30 years – but the news isn’t as bad as it sounds.

    I'm glad to see an article that doesn't treat 'part time' as a dirty word (phrase?). Our organisation ( is almost all part time and we attract awesome people because of it. In our 6 years of operating we've only ever advertised for Interviewers (our core role) once. People find us because of the flexibility we offer.

    I know many more very talented people who really want to work less than full time but can't find suitable employers offering part time roles. People are voluntarily buying their time back for a more balanced life. That's a good thing.
