The Smart Working Handbook - New edition

Summary practical guidance to help you implement smart and flexible working

The 2nd edition of the Smart Working Handbook has been published, and was launched at a reception at the UK Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.

The new edition contains a number of changes:

  • A single consolidated 'People' section, bringing together flexible working practices, culture change, management and training
  • Updated sections on technology and workplaces
  • A new section on Smart Working and wellbeing
  • New and more detailed case studies
  • New real-life photography showing Smart Working in action.

SWHB Wellbeing pageThe first edition of the Smart Working Handbook has been enormously influential in helping to shape the way that many organisations work.

Business, public sector and non-profit organisations are finding this strategic and business-focused approach to ‘flexibility as normal’ is a powerful way to achieve benefits for employers, employees and wider society.

The Handbook has been adopted or adapted by many organisations as their internal guide to Smart Working. Working with the Cabinet Office we have also adapted it to become the UK central government’s Guide for Smart Working in Government. The approach has become a key plank in the government’s Efficiency & Reform programme.

This new edition is supported by Plantronics, Citrix, CMI Workplace, Saint-Gobain Ecophon, Workplace Manager, and Vision29 – all companies with great expertise in developing smarter working. And many thanks to the Department for Business Innovation & Skills who hosted the spendid launch event, with additional support from Plantronics.

We hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
