This presentation will provide a rare opportunity for attendees to obtain some insights into how an organisation, with exceptional commitment and quality approach, can successfully manage a project to completely transform their workplace and to understand why they won the BCS/Computing Award in 2016.

Melin Homes is a Housing Association based in South Wales, employing just 245 staff and operating with limited resources. The Association has a very strong co-operative culture with a highly motivated staff team; two years ago they embarked on an ambitious journey to encourage their staff and Board to work smarter and become more agile and efficient.

They are now in a position where all staff are able to conduct their day to day duties completely remotely from anywhere they wish via the implementation of new technologies and working practices.

Their dynamic vision has enabled them to drastically improve the services provided to their residents and partners whilst reducing costs, improving the working environment, reducing their impact upon the natural environment and delivering greater job satisfaction and empowerment for all their staff.
