We act responsibly in how we use our resources and take sustainability matters seriously.

Our Flexible Working Vision
We are transforming the way we work together to help us all lead happy and healthy lives. If we’re happy and healthy then it should help us do our work well and enjoy it.
Flexible working has lots of other benefits. It will help make GTC Scotland an excellent place to work and widen out who might want to come and work with us, enhancing our diversity. It will help build our organisational resilience and adaptability meaning we stand a better chance of being able to keep our services going if global pandemics and other unpredictable events continue to affect us. It also gives us an opportunity to change things up and modernise by optimising our use of technology and building meaningful, focused face-to-face collaboration and connection. There’s a good chance that being free to work where and when we want will mean we become more creative and innovative in how we work and help us ensure a positive working culture that is defined by mutual trust and respect. We might just help the planet in the process too by reducing travel and improving our carbon footprint.
Please remember that this transformation process is an opportunity to learn and adjust together – we are always learning – we will keep it under constant review and change and refine it as and when we need to.
