The Department's policy on (a) the space provided per employee is to meet the Government's 10m(2) per full-time equivalent (FTE) workplace standard and on (b) home working is to encourage all forms of flexible working patterns including home working where this can cost-effectively deliver against business needs. The Department's policy on (c) hot desking was to fully implement it on 29 March 2010 at a ratio of 10 staff to eight desks and the average space per employee is 10.5m(2) per FTE.
