Delivering the benefits of workforce flexibility
Organisations are being challenged to find improvements in efficiency through cost control. With revenues under pressure and public sector budgets under scrutiny, sizing the service delivery to suit new business models is a challenge everyone is facing.
Developing a Sustainable Workplace Plan with the support of the Work Wise UK Team provides you with a structured review of strategy and support in developing your workplace plans.The plan enables your workforce to reduce wasted effort and cost on travel, non-value adding activities and for you to reduce premises budgets.
It identifies opportunities to realise savings through more effective use of ICT e.g. coordinated procurement and support to realise economies of scale and reduce costs such as, central high volume purchases to cut cost per item, sharing of printers and investment in video-conferencing to reduce travel costs. It will also show that investment in more modern, efficient and sustainable kit will reduce running costs and enable your workforce to work more flexibly, for example, purchase of multi functional devices, Blackberries, laptops, etc;
It is about how you do the work, not what work you do – it’s about new ways of working to ensure more effective delivery of business goals – emphasis on outcomes and deliverables via sustainable and efficient approach. Using our Sustainable Workplace Plan, which is based on our experiences of working with some of the UK’s leading organisations, we can help you identify the most effective and sustainable way to deliver what is needed.
An ideal compliment to a travel plan, the Sustainable Workplace Plan places high emphasis on the potential of mobile and home working. Supporting work-life balance but requiring well thought through supporting HR policies such as, Health & Safety, management style and responsibilities as well as individual approach to work.
Competency-based & focussed on outputs/deliverables, it reinforces the elimination of unnecessary travel and other non-value adding activities by forcing you to focus on outputs/deliverables and how best to achieve these with limited resources. A key challenge in the adoption of new ways of working is securing the necessary behavioural changes amongst the workforce. This cannot be underestimated and will require investment of time and effort. The Sustainable Workplace Plan will provide a route map for dealing with the change management and performance management issues that enables the workforce to work in smarter ways.
The process involves the following steps.
Fee: Determined by the number of employees
In addition a tailored support package if required from Work Wise UK accredited consultants to help with deployment of the plan, which could focus on training, technology or HR, practices.
