Developing a new workforce culture for Tameside MBC and CCG
Journey4 and its specialist workspace planning consultant Baker Stuart, have been working with Tameside MBC and CCG to design a new flexible working model, called ‘Work Smart’.
The Work Smart project provides a unique opportunity to create a new organisational culture; one that finds the right balance between how people have been working during COVID and a more hybrid approach. The aim is to maximise productivity and inclusivity, whilst meeting the needs of the workforce to connect with people and achieve a better work life balance.
Stuart Pearce, Director at Journey4 commented, “we are delighted to be working in partnership with Baker Stuart, to help create and embed a new workforce culture, addressing the needs of 3 core components – people, space, and technology. The Work Smart project is customer-focussed, with the priority being delivering public services where their needed, when there needed, as effectively and efficiently as possible”
Our approach has included engagement with staff and key stakeholders to understand new working and service delivery requirements, coupled with a review of the property portfolio to create new working spaces and models that allowed employees to work most effectively.
