This report provides a framework Agile Working Policy which is a principles based document to assist the organisation to continue its progress in providing modern ways of working for the benefit of employees and those that we provide services to both internally and externally.



Decision: That


(1)          the Agile Working Policy be adopted for use within the Authority (excluding schools).


(2)         the Head of Corporate Resources, along with the Chief Personnel Officer, monitors and reviews the policy in conjunction with trade unions with any necessary amendments necessary for practical purposes to be made in consultation with the Cabinet Member.  Amendments of a more fundamental nature as necessary will be subject to recognised consultation processes with trade unions.
