Dell Corporation Ltd, Finalist 2011, The National Grid Best for Flexible Working Award
Dell have invested in the technology to allow people to work from home, providing employees with the tools and training they need to move to home based working. Additionally they offer financial support to do this. Training for managers and staff is provided to ensure that home based working is not stigmatised, and managers are trained in how to effectively manage remote workers. Feedback from staff has revealed that this is a popular policy, and the UK pilot has been rolled out to 10 countries. Staff are also able to access other flexible working options, which can be vital for those who work with colleagues in different time zones.
