Remote and Flexible Working

Who Would Benefit
Anyone who is required to work from home or a remote location without direct personal line manager interaction.

Course Description
The cost case for flexible working is easy to convey, savings on building costs, transport etc. – we do not want managers and staff to feel that these are the only drivers.

Flexible working has huge benefits for staff, but these can be influenced by negative views and corporate policy/procedures. It is for everyone to remove these barriers. Some are attitudinal, some are procedural – all are under managerial and staff control.

For staff, the issues of an overlaid home/work environment can be new and daunting. Hidden issues need to be brought out and discussed, shared and understood through facilitated sessions. When will I work? How will I be measured? Will it affect progression?

This course is a must for anyone who is working from home or any remote location.
