Dear Janet,


Thank you for your email requesting information.


Please see the response below to your request.

Cannock Chase Council is still operating its' hybrid working model on an
extended temporary basis and is shortly due to begin a trial of a role /
worker type model, trialling arrangements for office attendance, desk
booking etc. to inform a longer term approach.

As an estimate, approximately 75% of the Counicl's employees work
regularly from home under current arrangement, but attend the office as
and when required in order to meet the needs of their respective roles.

As no permanent arrangements have been made regarding the future of hybrid
working, there has been no change as yet to the configuration of the
office space.

Prior to the pandemic, approximately 320 of the Council's 450 employees
worked in the office environment.
For queries relating to how your request has been handled in relation to
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 please feel free to contact me. If you
