BAE systems wins Agile Organisation Award

Case study - BAE Systems wins Agile Organisation Award at the Opportunity Now Excellence Practice Awards 2015.

Motivate

BAE Systems Naval Ships business is a traditional shipbuilding organisation, historically governed by rigid working hours. Future resourcing challenges within the business was a strong driver to developing a 21st century employment proposition, with Smart Working at the heart of achieving this ambition.

Act

Smart Working introduced various mechanisms to maximise the level of flexibility for employees. These mechanisms were to enable the evolution of our culture with a greater focus on output and performance rather than when or where work is carried out.

A guiding principle behind Smart Working is that ‘any role can be done flexibly, providing it is not to the detriment of the business.’

Leadership commitment was vital, with leaders acting as role models to sponsor this change.

A dedicated communications and engagement strategy was deployed to support the successful launch of Smart Working.

Impact

Across BAE Systems’ staff population, the Company achieved significant savings in the first year of the programme. In addition, it has evidence that 76% of employees are engaged in Smart Working.

Employee feedback illustrates the success of the programme:

‘With a family having the right worklife balance is really important to me. My team support me and embrace smart working too.’ Female manager, Transformation.
