21 Jul 2020

Resources available to managers

Many of our staff have now been working from home for several months and we have received a number of questions about remote and flexible working.  

We are currently undertaking a survey called What Works? to understand your experiences of working during lockdown, and this will inform our long term policy and strategy.

In the meantime, if you are a manager and you receive a request for flexible working, there is support available on Managers’ Essentials

Resources include:

  • Managing applications;
  • Undertaking trial periods;
  • Assessing roles for flexibility potential.

If you would like more information about managing flexible working applications and the law relating to flexible working requests, an online workshop is available through Staff Learning and Development
