Could Flexible Working Hubs be seen across Ogmore? – Have your say to shape workplace future

The pandemic has completely changed the way in which many businesses and people across the world are working, and the Welsh Government has set a long-term ambition of 30% of the Welsh workforce working from home or much closer to home.

A new website has been launched providing interactive maps so people can help the Welsh Government decide where best to locate flexible co-working hubs, so they get maximum use.

Ogmore MS Huw Irranca-Davies is encouraging residents to take part via the new interactive website and to drop their pin in a location where they would like to see a remote hub created.

Mr Irranca-Davies said: “This is a great opportunity for people to have a say in where they want to work, maybe hot-desking in a hub with others close to local beauty spots and heritage sites or closer to their homes?

This type of flexible working can help people and their employers, while also strengthening local communities and bringing benefits for the climate.”

To enable more people to work closer to home the Welsh Government is also piloting new flexible working spaces in the Valleys Taskforce area. These Discovery Gateways are an important means of telling the stories of the Valleys and encouraging local people and visitors to explore and enjoy the natural and cultural heritage of often overlooked areas.

Evidence collected from the interactive map and the pilot projects in the Valleys will be important in informing the future roll out of hubs. A small number of other local work pilots will be announced soon.
