National Work from Home Day

For the 300th post on this site it seems appropriate that it should be about a day set aside for homeworking. Work Wise UK has decided that its now annual Work Wise Week will this year run from May 16 to May 22 (why a Wednesday to a Tuesday? Apparently to demonstrate flexible work patterns, that a week does not have to conform to the traditional Monday to Friday), taking in National Work from Home Day on May 18 (which is a Friday, often a popular choice as a day for working from home according to CBI research). Work Wise Week 2007 will include a summit at the QEII Conference Centre in London to review the first year of the campaign. Other days will look at the impact of smarter working on the environment, transport, staff welfare, and on the employer through higher productivity. There will also be several regional events around the country following the same themes. Watch this space for more news.
