The Smarter Working team look back at last week's TW3 Awards, and highlight the best practice demonstrated by this year's winning departments.
Smarter Working team
TW3 (The Way We Work) is in the Cabinet Office Government Property Unit (GPU) leading a cross-departmental programme.
Our vision of the Civil Service is to create a decent working environment for all staff, with modern workplaces enabling flexible working, substantially improving IT tools and streamlining security requirements to be less burdensome for staff.

This week we celebrated those departments who have successfully put into place large-scale smarter working practices with the inaugural TW3 Awards.
What does 'transforming the way we work' mean to civil servants? The Smarter Working team shine a light on their work of the last 18 months.
Anyone going into any courtroom three years ago would have seen prosecutors with a stack of files on the bench, and similarly the shelves in our offices were piled high with paper case files. This is changing – every day thousands of cases are being prepared and presented digitally by prosecutors in courts across England and Wales.
