I offer my sincere thanks to the Smart Working Revolution Team for the fantastic work they’ve done with our teams. It’s great to see them embracing/getting their heads around our smart working journey – you have both made a real difference.

Mark Gardner. CEO Ocean Group.

We’re not consultants

My team are Practitioners who have been transforming workforces to work smarter for the last 20 years. We’ve discovered the pitfalls and learned from mistakes so that you don’t have to.

It’s small wonder that Smart Workforce Transformation is popular with leaders because it is associated with higher levels of productivity and lower wage growth. Given employees are very keen on it too, this also lowers firms’ recruitment and retention costs, making organisations more cost effective.

Ruth Gawthorpe, CEO of the Revolution.

What type of smart working will suit your business?

Every business is different.  Some smart options will suit your business and some will not.  There are more than 60 different smart workforce options that we have uncovered or designed for clients. You can see a handful to the right.

But the smart organisation considers not only what flexible options will work for them but also how leaders and teams must be developed to create a smart culture.  Wherever you are in your smart working journey we will help your team work out how your current workforce should evolve.

Successful smart working solutions improve productivity by at least 13%.  That’s nearly one day per week!
