The OPW recently reviewed its policy to permit reduced work patterns for newly promoted staff, and plans are currently underway to review leadership development opportunities available to female staff, with a view to ensuring equality of progress across the organisation.

The OPW has embraced the Blended Working Policy and has introduced a flexible working culture across the organisation, which offers increased work life balance opportunities for staff in roles deemed suitable for blended working patterns.
