Earlier this year Microsoft launched www.anywhereworking.org which is an online portal to help organisations adopt more flexible working practices. Providing resources for both employers and employees in the form of training, guidance, case studies.
The online portal is the first step in delivering tools and advice that will help organisations understand the benefits of flexible working and aims to drive greater productivity and efficiency, reduce employee stress and absenteeism, lower carbon emissions from travelling. The initiative aims to secure 30,000 supporters of this new way of working, with a total audience reach of 300,000.
Business in the Community Chief Executive Stephen Howard commented: “Business in the Community encourages its members as responsible businesses to reduce the amount of carbon generated by business travel as well as offering flexible working practices. Commuting accounts for around a fifth of all miles travelled to say nothing of the time lost to business and the impact on employees’ quality of life and work life balance. Supporting Anywhere Working is a way that responsible employers can save money and carbon and support their workforce.”
