An Action Plan to support effective blended team working in the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
As an organisation that recognises our people are our number one asset, we are committed to making blended working a permanent feature of how we support our workforce.
The ConnEcTEd Teams initiative aims to identify and promote behaviours that supports effective, inclusive and rewarding blended working targeting five key areas:
- maintaining team/ organisation-wide connectedness and trust
- ensuring effective and efficient information flows
- enabling continued on-the-job training and coaching activities
- facilitating remote collaboration and innovation
- supporting employee wellbeing
In early 2021, seven teams from across the Department worked with experts from Grant Thornton to review their remote working experience. Each of the teams developed and implemented a plan of action aimed at enhancing their remote and blended working performance.
Using the lessons learned from the pilot teams and the other ConnEcTEd Teams initiatives, we developed the Connected Teams Action Plan that consists of twenty-six actions for the Department. Over the next 12 months, the ConnEcTEd Teams Implementation Group will oversee its implementation, reporting on progress to Management Board quarterly.
