More than a third of UK managers believe their companies would provide a home computer with Internet access for employees if they were encouraged by a Government backed scheme or tax incentives according to research.
The survey by Internet service provider PeoplePC also reveals that almost a third of workers believe that the Government should help employers to provide Internet access for employees at home.
The same figure would like their employer to provide them with a home computer with Internet access.
The survey shows that 35 per cent of employees rate a home computer as a better remuneration tool than health club membership.
Thirty-two per cent of employees would also be prepared to contribute to the cost of a home computer.
