Brief Description of Requirement
Workspace Booking System
The application is required in order to replace the existing system which no longer meets the needs for hybrid working in the context of dynamic teams and changing physical environment (office space reconfiguration). The system needs to be intuitive from a user's perspective, available via a responsive web application and a mobile app, configurable and meeting the organisation's Future of Work requirements - This is referring to our requirement to restructure how UKRI workspace is laid out, this may mean moving desks around, changing the use of space etc. The solution needs to be adaptable to allow us to update to reflect these changes. Key tenets of the Future of Work are:
• We will have to commute to work less often, saving us money and cutting our carbon footprint (CO2 emissions), thus supporting our UKRI environmental sustainability strategy
• We will be more motivated, healthier and better connected - because of the greater flexibility of hybrid working that makes it easier to achieve a good work-life balance
• We will be able to use the appeal of hybrid working to attract the most talented people with fewer location restraints and from more diverse backgrounds
• We will be able to be more productive and perform better as individuals and as an organisation, with the increased job satisfaction that comes from that
Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement. All attachments can be found with the Document Uploads tab within the Delta eSourcing Portal.
