I would suggest that you respond as follows:

1) I will remain committed to the business and customers as the new working arrangements will enable me to look after my children during school holidays as there is no one else to look after them.

2) there are no operational issues as far as I can see;

3) the new working arrangements will enable me to continue with my employment and provide a good work life balance to me and the benefits of this to me will eventually flow down to the business and customers.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further help.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.


I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.


Thank you!
