For many workers for many years, flexible working was just a pipe-dream. But with the evolution of mobile technology and the creation of some very clever apps, flexible working is fast becoming a reality for more and more workers every day. In fact, a recent report by the Guardian stated that home workers accounted for 13.9% of all those in work in the UK during the first quarter of 2014 – the highest rate recorded since comparable records began.
Finally, employers are realising that the benefits of home and mobile working far outweigh the negatives. Employees relish the autonomy of managing their own workload and they save time and money by reducing the need to commute. And most importantly, their work-life balance is vastly improved and protected.
A range of mobile technology as well as digital apps such as Office 365 and Skype for Business, are the tools that make flexible working effective. Employees can store, access and share files from the Cloud and hold conference calls on-line – carrying out their day-to-day activities as if they were in the office.
