These resources will help you to offer flexible working awareness and engagement sessions for your agency’s employees and managers.

Your agency may need to run these sessions when it has revised its policy, if your employee survey data reveals there are employees or managers who would benefit from an increased awareness of flexibility and open mind towards its use, or if your agency is moving to a new activity-based workspace and the expectation is that more employees will work flexibly.

Practical and skills-focused, these sessions provide an opportunity to clearly articulate organisational expectations about how it can work, and respective roles and goals. Use the facilitator guide and the accompanying resources below.

You may also want to use the skill sets for the relevant audience as an activity to get people thinking about what they need to know, say and do to meet their role and responsibilities when working or managing a flexible team.
