PAS 3000:2015 Smart working
PAS 3000 provides a strategic framework for modernizing working practices.
It was developed in support of ‘The Way We Work’ initiative which is a cornerstone of the UK Civil Service Reform Programme, based on the Cabinet Office document The Way We Work – Smart Working in Government and work undertaken as part of the Smart Working Charter.
The PAS also reflects that Smart Working has become more common in recent years in the private sector, with new technologies supporting more mobility of work, legislation encouraging flexible working and new trends in workplace design.
Also, to date there has not been a single code of practice that brings together good practice across the disciplines involved: HR, property and technology. PAS 3000 fills that gap.
What does the PAS cover?
PAS 3000 gives recommendations for establishing good practice for the implementation of Smart Working, against which organizations can be benchmarked.
It covers changes to working practices, culture, working environments and associated technology.
Who is the standard for?
This PAS is for use by the public, private and not-for-profit sectors and by organizations of any size, large or small.
It is intended that it be used by leaders and managers in employing organizations and those charged with implementing Smart Working programmes.
