More than a remote chance of a surge in homeworking

In Personnel Today’s 20th anniversary issue (26 February), you ask: ‘Is the employee of the future going to be a young, besuited man or woman sitting at a desk from nine to five?’.

Changes in the wider context of work will have a big impact on the worker of the future. They will need to work across time zones, languages and cultures.

With this new-age worker in mind, many employers are now considering remote working and working from home as viable options in their recruitment drive. Currently, around 3.1 million people usually or regularly work from home, and this is likely to double in the near future.
