Bar Council Annual Report 2016-17

Aim 8 - Worksmart

Let’s chat.


A new way of working was introduced at the Bar Council in 2016 called Work Smart. The aim of the initiative was to introduce smarter working practices for Bar Council and BSB employees. The aim was to create less permanent desk space and flexible working spaces, allowing the organisation to become more agile with the ability to move to a smaller office space in future. Other benefits of the initiative included: Improved work-life balance for staff through flexible working, optimal use of existing office space and reducing the organisation’s carbon footprint. Additional benefits have been a more collaborative and innovative office environment.
