Wrexham County Borough Council
The Council's Food Safety Team, based within the Housing and Public Protection Department, has used work-life balance arrangements to help provide extra capacity to allow them to do some of their work in the evenings where the team can then visit restaurants and food outlets. This has proved much more effective than their previous 9 to 5 office-based arrangements.
The Food Safety Section also started home working in July 2007. Four Environmental Health Officers/Food Safety Officers are now set up with an 'office' at home, although the Senior Officer is still based in the town centre offices.
Contact is maintained by regular team meetings, and team members working at home are able to communicate with colleagues via the telephone throughout the day.
