This case study examines a programme of flexible working options introduced at Aberdeenshire Council. The programme was aimed at reducing staff commuting mileage through allowing staff to change their working patterns and achieving financial savings through a reduction in the number of council offices.

The study considers how financial pressures in an organisation can provide a good opportunity to reflect on work organisation and deliver cash savings alongside environmental sustainability.
