Cardinia Shire has taken the opportunity to review its way of working as part of the move to new civic offices. The platform for the change has been to embrace an activity based working model which will improve business processes, organisation culture and result in better and more responsive service delivery. Cardinia is the first Council to adopt activity based working to transform the business where all staff collaborate on projects in shared spaces rather than at pre-assigned desks. This has transformed the Council from being totally dependent on paper into an office with a fully mobile, paper- independent office where staff work independent of time and place. The project has already won several awards and has attracted significant interest from the sector.
