Description The Tavistock Institute undertook a project to invesitgate the human aspects of the dispersal of Civil Service departments from London to other areas of the country. Following a review by Sir Gilbert Flemming in 1963 self contained units of work were dispersed from London. In 1971, Sir Henry Hardman undertook a review of further dispersal possibilities. One of the studies forming part of the Hardman Review was the commission of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations to undertake research and make recommendations. This entailed looking back on completed dispersal operations in Government and the private sector, consideration of the attitudes of those people who may be required to disperse by the Hardman Review, and looking at the experience of terms and allowances payable to staff on dispersal.
