Smarter Working is our plan for the way we want to work in Barnet, with facilities and working practices which help us do our jobs effectively, reducing the amount we spend on accommodation.
There are three key things that our Smarter Working plan focuses on improving:
- people – engaging and investing in our people
- accommodation – better use of workplaces
- technology – ICT designed for your needs.
This Smarter Working initiative began during 2015 when staff moved from 3 buildings into 2 buildings over the Summer. Eventually we’ll go down to one building based in Colindale, which will happen in 2017. Colindale will be a brand new building, planned and designed to meet our needs and at the heart of the community.
If applicable your manager or buddy will go through the Smarter Working plans in greater detail during your first few days as it impacts the way the majority of staff at the council work.
