Increasing homeworking in North East predicted

As reported in bdaily.info, a study by Future Matters suggests that 75% of workers expect new technology to make home working more common. Future Matters Project Director Phil Shakeshaft said: “The impact of improving communication technologies and the preference for a more even work-life balance are probably driving this finding. Employees need to think about how this will impact their businesses. Will they need smaller premises? How will they manage productivity in a distributed environment?" He estimates that in ten years’ time as many as one in five of North Easterners could be based at home.
