Training for homeworkers

It won't come as a great shock to those of us working from home that flexible workers are often overlooked when it comes to training, as an article in Personnel Today by Sarah-Jane North explains. Christina Evans, strategic HR specialist at the management education centre Roffey Park, is quoted as saying: “The long-term career development of flexible workers is definitely an emerging issue. There would appear to be a different perception of what career development is when you are not within the traditional career structure." There are also numerous examples of how large companies are dealing with this emerging challenge/problem. If you're working flexibly or employing flexible workers, this piece is a must-read.
