We have a number of resources which will help you work more flexibly.
We have developed a comprehensive learning and development package for staff and their managers who are about to embark on the move to mobile and flexible working. If you are in a service which is about to do this or you are already working in flexible workstyle and haven't been given a password to access the learning portal, please contact your manager. The link to the portal is:
(This will take you to an external website. You will need to use your Internet
log-in name and password.)
In addition, your Service might also arrange face to face briefings and/or training sessions for you.
There are a number of courses that are delivered as part of the corporate learning and development programme which managers and employees may find useful to help make the transition to flexible working arrangements. In particular the Change Management and Managing Performance suite of modules in the Skills for All section can help improve your skill and understanding of how to work differently with team colleagues to maximise the benefits achieved when moving to flexible working.
There are a number of different meeting rooms available throughout Fife Council buildings which you can book for use.
Using the conference call device on VOIP phones can also help you make better use of your time and help cut down on unnecessary travel.
If you're unfamiliar with this technology read the practical advice for conference call.
Thinking about the way you travel as part of your mobile and flexible work style can make better use of your time and resources, and improve your health.
Changing your work style has a part to play in reducing carbon emissions by reducing the number of buildings we occupy, the amount of travel we do and using equipment efficiently. Find out more on the climate change, carbon and energy mini-site.
