Civil Service, Commended 2017, Best Public Sector Employer Award
The Civil Service has shown consistent leadership and innovation in flexible working and inclusion. In total, 24 per cent of employees work part-time and many others work flexibly in some way – such as home working, term time working or compressed hours. Managers are trained on flexible working and job sharing is actively supported – a job share database helps employees find suitable job share partners. There are many networks and support groups for employees and most vacancies are advertised as being suitable for flexible working. Senior champions ensure that inclusion is led from the highest levels of the 400,000-strong organisation.
