Description

Mobile working and remote working from home or a small office, using phone, PC, fax and narrowband Internet is a rapidly increasing practice. The many well-documented benefits of working this way include higher productivity, more time spent with the family and local community and less time wasted commuting. At a community level they include benefits to the environment through substituting physical transport by telecommunications, and re-vitalisation of ruiral communities. Yet, people who work mainly this way face severe problems: a loss of contact with the office grapevine, the "out of sight, out of mind" syndrome, and exclusion from vital ad-hoc meetings and tutorials. Another major problem is slow speed of communication. This volume summarizes how technologies can revolutionise flexible working practices and go a long way towards solving the isolation problems of flexible workers.show more
