Telework Association: how can we help?
For two decades we've been promoting the benefits of teleworking for individuals and organisations.
What is meant by 'teleworking' has changed over the years. In the early 1990s it was mostly about people in rural areas working in telecentres, often doing data processing jobs, as a way to bring work to disadvantaged areas. As technology became cheaper and more accessible teleworking came to mean people working at or from home wherever they lived and embraced communication and collaboration not only across miles but often across continents. As technology has made even greater leaps over the last few years, and expectations of work have changed, 'teleworking' has evolved to mean "anytime, anywhere" working. So although much of our focus is on how to implement successful home working, either as an individual or as an organisation, the principles of self motivation, clear communication and trusting management, are just as important and relevant to working anywhere, anytime.
So, whether you're an employee hoping to convince your boss to let you work more flexibly, a budding entrepreneur planning to set up a home based business, an individual looking for home-based work or a manager improving your remote managing skills, you can benefit from our experience.
