agiLab’s purpose is to share academic knowledge and best practice to effectively deliver and implement agile working initiatives that ‘work’. Agile working means taking a flexible approach to where, when and how people work. It offers a liberation from traditional work structures. Agile working involves using digital tools and innovative practices to free employees and organisations from rigid one-size-fits all working arrangements related to time, place and role. agiLab aims to be at the forefront of leading the agenda to support and optimise agile working, via the utilisation of, and contribution towards, state-of-the-art academic research.
agiLab NHS is the co-creation of academics at the University of Sussex, the NHS South East Regional Social Partnership Forum (SPF) and the NHS HR Directors Network (SE). It is run by a steering committee of NHS practitioners and the academic team at Sussex. A key strategic aim of the NHS is to develop more flexible and pioneering ways of meeting the diverse needs of workers, patients and society.
