The Home Working policy is part of our work/life balance policies. This is where work is performed at or from home instead of at or from the Board’s premises for a significant proportion of the contractual working hours.
“Working from home” and “working at home” have specific definitions in the policy and operate in different ways. These options are desirable because they can provide greater flexibility for our staff and increase the scope to meet the Board’s commitment to equal opportunities.
In addition, we can broaden the traditional recruitment market and gain access to alternative labour markets allowing us to attract and retain staff.
There are also environmental advantages by avoiding unnecessary car journeys.
