BT started its first Smart Working programme in the late 1980s. Since then, we’ve enabled more and more of our workforce to move first from office to hub based working, then to truly mobile working. Critically, we’ve learnt that support for workers and the right organisational infrastructure are key to success.
But we’re not just one of the most experienced practitioners; we’ve also been enabling our customers to achieve similar benefits and savings from flexible/smart working since the early 90s.
BT is one of the few organisations that works across all areas of the UK public sector, enabling organisations to meet the challenges of controlling costs and maintaining excellence, to be able to access, record and share information both within and across agencies and departments.
We believe that working more flexibly, sharing physical infrastructure and information will be a critical area for the Civil Service going forward. We call it the Art of Connecting, it’s about providing you with the ability to connect and communicate whatever you need to, whenever and wherever you are.
BT has supported these awards in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and we’re proud to continue our sponsorship into 2019.
