Key areas of smart working

Key areas of smart working include:

  • Maximising our current technology
  • Making best use of our physical spaces
  • Understanding how our systems and processes can support us all to work more flexibly

Moving to phase 2

Phase 1 of smart working was ‘when and where we work’. We are now moving focus to phase 2: ‘how’ we work.

Meeting our strategic objective should enable us to:

  • Meet our demand better
  • Work much more proactively with communities (people helping people)
  • Make smarter decisions about use of resources (commercial)
  • Achieve our ambitions to become a smart county
  • Develop Digital Champion network to embed new technology and ways of working

Digital is supporting Smart Working to equip us with the right tools to make us a Smart Council and Digital First.

The next step within the Smart Working programme is the implementation of Office 365 across the county council.
