Procter & Gamble win award for homeworking

Computer Weekly reports on the winners in the Best Places to Work in IT Awards 2007 including Procter & Gamble winner of the Manufacturing and engineering category. "Procter & Gamble’s IT department has a strong focus on flexible working and homeworking. IT staff have access to a suite of flexible work arrangements, including sabbaticals, reduced work schedules and family leave. Regular community events ensure that home and office workers reconnect to strengthen friendships and working relationships," it says. I particularly like the sound of their monthly cake club where "people take time out to relax and joke about the merits of people’s baking talents, as they eat cakes baked by their peers."
