Looks at the extent to which employers recognise and act on “business case” incentives for implementing working‐time flexibility for those wishing to develop career paths. Focuses, in particular, on women's flexibility following maternity and their ability to access part‐time management positions through accommodating a reduction in working hours, or the integration and promotion of women working part‐time to managerial status. The research was generated through 62 qualitative interviews with mothers currently working in the hospitality industry and a further ten interviews with male and female managers of these women. Findings reveal that while managers are aware of the benefits of retaining highly qualified women managers, these informal practices are not universally accessible. There is little evidence that managers recognise a “business case” for the integration of part‐time workers into higher occupational grades, despite the recent regulation of part‐time work in the UK.
