‘Smartworking’ Trend Report on New Ways of Working

Tony Hancock in Office

JBA has drawn together a report on ‘Smartworking’ – a term aimed at encapsulating today’s new working practices and philosophies. JBA’s report looks at the driving forces of cultural and organisational change and clearly frames how quickly viewpoints are changing.

The report provides a ‘roots-to-future’ story of shifting attitudes to work, and to provide perspective on;

  • office demands,
  • workstyle considerations,
  • what’s required to retool management practices,
  • the importance of values and trust,
  • ecologically sustainable and socially just issues,
  • the impact on the corporate agenda, and
  • what the future might hold.
