Increasing the number of public sector employees working from home or on flexi-time would generate around £8 billion a year, new research has shown.


The move would cut office costs by freeing up desk space, reducing sickness levels and increasing productivity by between 5% and 15%, according to the Leaner and Greener II: Putting Buildings to Work report.
