As National Workwise week kicked off yesterday with a UK summit new research adds to the case for providing flexibility and homeworking options in the workplace. Britain is top of the table for workplace whinging according to a recent European Survey from FDS. More than one in three British workers said they did not get enough holidays and one in five complained about the trails of commuting. Other research from RPI found that stay-at-home workers connected to the office via internet or telephone felt less drained and more trusted by their companies. They also said that they planned to stay longer with the company than their commuting counterparts.
With Workwise week in full swing and National Work from Home day taking place tomorrow (Friday 18th May) these new findings add to the mounting evidence base on the benefits of embracing new workplace working in the 21st century.
