Equalities and Wellbeing in Manufacturing Recommendations One Year Report

The Equalities and Wellbeing in Manufacturing Recommendations One Year Report was published earlier this month on the Scottish Government website, which summarises the progress made on the recommendations contained in the E&W in Manufacturing Recommendations Report that was published in June 2022.

CeeD were pleased to support and implement one of the recommendations, together with Flexibility Works. The Group had recommended that the Scottish Government/Enterprise Agencies/academic institutions build a resource of real-world examples that manufacturers can draw upon and learn from, including manufacturing-specific case studies from those who have implemented flexible working policies, and provide clear signposting to external support available to companies considering implementation.

CeeD and Flexibility Works ran workshops that featured manufacturing employers who shared their best practice real life examples with the attendees and, as a result of these workshops, several manufacturers engaged Flexibility Works to undertake flexible working assessments and introduced flexible working practices where possible.

In addition, in March 2022, SG awarded a grant which funded a collaborative project between Flexibility Works and CeeD, which created 3 video case studies of real world examples of flexible working best practice in the manufacturing sector, as well as an in person knowledge sharing event that was hosted at Volvo Rokbak in Motherwell. SG stated that 

"The video case studies have proven extremely popular and have been identified by SG and other public sector organisations as being an exemplar flexible working resource, with plans to use the videos and manufacturers involved as part of flexible working projects. The videos also featured in the InterAct Discovery Day.
