How shedworking helps the socially excluded

Call Centre Online reports on plans for a pilot homeshoring project by BT in north Scotland for call centre workers. Brendan Dick, director of BT Scotland, is quoted as saying: “Homeshoring is poised to become the next big trend in the industry and Scotland is well placed to create new jobs from it. It’s also an ideal vehicle for bringing employment back to socially excluded sections of the community. Home working enables people who have difficulty finding jobs – parents with childcare issues, disabled people and people who care for sick or elderly relatives – to work from home at times which suit themselves and their employers."
