The number of councils around the country who are introducing flexible and homeworking initiatives is certainly on the up. The latest to announce such a move is Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council who, according to What PC, have introduced flexible working practices for its remote support worker team and plan to broaden the initiative to other staff. "You have to ensure that people still feel part of the community and are not totally isolated; you have to explore how you deal with meetings and travel expenses and you have to do health and safety checks as you cannot allow people to work off the kitchen table – the room has to meet BSE standards," said head of information systems Paul Briddock.
