SMART Working

What is smart working?

Smart working is often referred to as flexible working by many people and organisations. The terms flexible working/dynamic and smart working are used interchangeably. The government’s definition of flexible working is:

“A way of working that suits an employee’s needs”

There are many forms of dynamic working. It can describe a place of work, for example working from home, or a type of contract, such as part-time working, flexitime, job sharing and sift work.

Millennials see smart working as an essential part of attracting and retaining their talent within an organisation.
