Working with nonhomeworkers

An interesting post on this subject at Jim Belshaw's Ndarala Group blog in which he talks about the work expectations of traditional office workers when it comes to dealing with home workers. After discussing the various problems he concludes that: "The only solution is to ensure that the individual teleworker, his/her managers and the organisation itself work through the issues in advance. As part of this, the teleworker needs to learn how to proactively manage relations with colleagues downwards, sideways and especially up." The section is part of a much longer posting on teleworking/homeworking in general which is well worth reading.


  1. Thank you for visiting and for this post, Alex. I had not seen your site before and found it very interesting.

  3. The more the merrier, Alex. I have some other Group material on teleworking to run.

    Also, I was approached by Andrew Buckland who is doing his Masters on teleworking. Andrew is especially interested in those in conventional employment who telework. I did a story on this on another of our blogs seeking support for his questionnaire -

    It may be that there is someone among your readers who can help.
