Over recent years, various organizations have implemented 'Smart Working'. The University of Twente also wants to make it easier for managers and staff to work in a 'smarter' way. This website introduces you to Smart Working and provides points of reference and information about options and facilities, along with practical tips, checklists and the experiences of others.
The term 'Smart Working' refers to an alternative way of working that is independent of time and place. This way of working requires new organizational and management methods for the work, with the conduct of managers and staff being essential for its success. The support for operational processes also changes for this alternative way of working, both in terms of staff management and information technology, as well as space management (at work and elsewhere) and other facilities.
Among other advantages, Smart Working makes a contribution to:
- the stimulation of cooperation
- office space savings
- sustainability policies
- reduced travelling times and travelling expenses
- the ability to work more efficiently
- a better balance between work and private life
- increased enjoyment of work
