A new award, launched by Remote Employment, will highlight how remote working, homeworking and shedworking benefits the environment, business productivity and employees' quality of work life - and Shedworking will be among the judges.
The Remote Worker Awards come at a time when companies across the UK are faced with downsizing their workforce. The awards aims to raise awareness for remote and home working as an alternate solution to redundancy and the traditional nine to five office routine.The Remote Employer Award will honour the winning Remote Employer that demonstrates how remote working and home working has made a beneficial impact on their business.
Employees who work remotely or work from home will be given the chance to impress their employer and work colleagues by winning The Remote Worker and Home Worker Awards. All freelancers, self employed consultants and project contractors are invited to enter The Freelance Consultant Award. These workers, who already enjoy the benefits of a flexible employment solution, will be given the chance to show traditionalists why more companies should be recruiting this way. And they will walk away with thousands of pounds in prizes, including a fabulous luxury weekend at a von Essen hotel.
Paula Wynne, organiser of the awards and co-founder of Remote Employment, a specialist online recruitment service expects to unearth an abundance of inventive pioneers who champion flexibility with remote working solutions. “The Remote Worker Awards will feature the winners in a Remote Worker E-Book to help other companies to implement a flexible and remote working program,” she said.
The Remote Worker Awards has lined up a prestigious panel of judges including serial entrepreneur, Karen Darby, founder of SimplySwitch, Cath Roan from Careershifters, Diana Robertson from Business Link London, Tony Corbin of MATiSSE and Jackie Brennan of FreshIdeas Events, Jeff Zbar (founder of the US-based Chief Home Officer site), and me.
