New edition of the Smart Working Handbook launched

Launch on 16th September 2015 at UK Department for Business

Smart Working Handbook 2015 coverWe're delighted to announce the launch of a 2nd updated edition of the Smart Working Handbook.

The launch took place at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills at an evening reception.

The first edition of the Smart Working Handbook was published in June 2011. Since then, as well as the original print run, there have been more than 10,000 downloads from Flexibility.co.uk and its partners.
It has also been enormously influential in helping to shape the way that organisations work. Business, public sector and non-profit organisaitions 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.
However, time moves on and the time is now right for a new edition of the Handbook. As well as updating to take account of new developments, the new edition has new sections on ergonomics and wellbeing, plus new case studies.

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 will be hosting the event, with addiitonal support from Plantronics.
