There is a sign off procedure to support, but normally agreed.
This scheme is frequently used by many employees which I really appreciate.
Controversial, business had limited office space and parking so working from home was required. However some managers were not aligned to the policy and did not allow reports to work from home.
autonomy to decide where to work
Infrastructure doesn't really support work from home and be as efficient as being in the office. Rather than that good flexbility.
difficult in the current culture/way business operates
You have the flexibility of working from home, however it will depends on the role.
This is agreeable with the manager, informally days in advance. As long as the colleague is trusted and performing reasonably, and there is no urgent meeting planned for that day, the permission is normally granted. This does not suit all departments, as some require specific equipment to be used at work.
Widely adopted practise, with no stigma attached to it. You may be asked to WFH on a specific day of the week in order to spread out the WFH days of the department across the week, but this is rare.
Flexibility is there should you want it. Output is against objectives not time in office.
