Teleworking guide homes in on good practice

A
joint initiative by the DTI, unions and employer organisations has led to the
publication of guidance on teleworking within the public sector.

Teleworking
in the public sector has increased staff satisfaction and boosted retention
rates, and lead to enhanced productivity.

The
CBI, TUC and CEEP UK (the Centre for European Enterprises with Public
Participation and Services of General Interest), collaborated with the DTI to
produce the guide.

Charles
Nolda, executive director of the Employers’ Organisation for Local Government
(EO) and CEEP UK’s representative said: “We can rightly be proud of the
constructive way in which this guidance has been drafted and to be among the
first countries to implement this European accord. It will provide a useful
tool for organisations considering developing their teleworking practices.”

The
full text of the teleworking guidance is available on the EO website: www.lg-employers.gov.uk/relations/ceep/
