The nature and extent of women’s participation in the labour market affects women’s economic status now and into the future. It can also affect the quality of their lives and those of their families.

Increased female labour market participation can deliver economic benefits to women, their families and the community. Understanding women's use of flexible work arrangements, their work preferences, and their perception of work and life balance will help build an understanding of the factors affecting women's participation in the workforce, thereby enabling policy makers to assess the potential benefits or otherwise of increasing the availability of flexible working arrangements.

The Workforce Participation and Workplace Flexibility Survey will contribute a greater understanding in the public domain of the extent of flexible working arrangements in the Victorian labour market, the experiences and needs of Victorians for flexible work arrangements, and barriers to participation for those not in the labour force.
