Agile Working Policy and Related Policy Amendments pdf icon PDF 2 MB

A Report of the Strategic Director of Environment and Corporate Services.

Minutes:

A report of the Strategic Director of Environment and Corporate Services was submitted to agree the proposed Agile Working Policy (item 6 on the agenda filed with these minutes).

 

The HR Manager noted that Council officers had been working agilely for 12 months already and that this showed the proposed policy was workable.  She also explained that there had been extensive consultation with Trade Unions and staff and amendments had been made.

 

RESOLVED that the proposed Agile Working Policy and the recommended amendments to policies related to agile working be agreed.

 

Reason

 

The Council has, for some time, been considering the principles of agile working and this, combined with the impact of COVID-19, has made it necessary to review working arrangements across the Council.  It is therefore proposed to broaden the scope of the Council’s current arrangements by introducing the Agile Working Policy.
