Departmental Flexible Working

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what flexi-time arrangements were available to staff of his Department in each of the last five years; and how many staff participated in such arrangements in each such year. (290547)

Staff in DCMS are actively encouraged to work alternative working patterns, including part-time working, 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 have, recently, installed a new Human Resources Information System (Oracle), which will record this information.
