Departmental Conditions of Employment

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what percentage of employees in his Department (a) are on a flexible working contract, (b) are on a job share employment contract and (c) work from home for more than four hours a week. (233856)

Staff in DCMS are actively encouraged to work alternative working patterns, including flexible working hours, job-sharing and working from home. These are mainly arranged at local line management level and the Department does not hold comprehensive data centrally about the percentages of staff involved. DCMS are in the process of installing a new human resources information system, which when operational will record this information.
