SOLUTION

1. Can  your  staff  work  remotely?     2.  Could  you  supply  them  with  Wi-­‐ Fi  enabled  phones  to  connect   remotely?   3.  Have  staff  been  informed  of  the   opBons  available  to  them?   4.  Have  staff  been  given  the   opBon  of  taking  leave?   5.  Will  you  be  giving  staff  the   opBon  of  flexi  working?   6.  Will  you  be  allowing  staff  to   watch  the  Games  whilst  they   work?   7.  Could  staff  work  at  offices/   stores  closet  to  where  they  live?   8.  Could  staff  to  work  compressed   weeks,  for  example,  work  four   longer  days  as  opposed  to  five   ‘normal’  days?   9.  Can  you  work  shij  paaerns  to   allow  staff  to  travel  at  quieter   Bmes?   10.  Can  you  change  your  core   operaBng  hours  to  ensure  your   staff  are  in  on  Bme?   11.  If  you  are  short  of  staff,  can   you  use  agency  staff?    

1. Check  your  home  working   capability   2.  Hold  an  Olympic  trial  week  to   see  the  different  ways  in  which   your  staff  can  travel  to  work   3.  Discuss  the  working  opBons   available  to  staff  i.e.  coming  in   early  and  leaving  early   4.  Define  necessary  staffing  levels   required  to  conBnue  all   business  operaBons  

ACTIONS
