Sharp rise in firms offering homeworking

The annual CBI Employment Trends survey is just out and it shows a big jump in the number of employers in Britain who are offering employees the chance to do some homeworking and shedworking. Sean O'Grady writing in The Independent writes:
"Some 46 per cent of employers say they offer this type of flexible working, three times higher than last year, when it was 14 per cent. This rapid and seemingly spontaneous rise has been welcomed by the CBI as helping to balance the demands of work and home, reduce congestion on public transport and roads, and benefit the environment, as fewer journeys mean lower CO2 emissions."
