Whitehall gets flexible for the Olympics

Whitehall gets flexible for the Olympics

For civil servants wanting to dodge the crowds in central London, the Cabinet Office has set up a low-cost alternative hub, hoping to entice the Whitehall-bound into Croydon instead.

While fears of Olympics-related travel chaos may have turned out to be overblown, civil servants who would normally be travelling into central London during the Games have been given the option to spend time in the government’s new flexible working facility instead.

Rather than heading into Whitehall, dozens of civil servants will be able to use the newly-established flexible working hub, which has been set up in a 1960s office block in the south London suburb of Croydon.
