Remote working is now widely recognised as part of the way businesses operate.
Despite this widespread acceptance, however, every business looking at teleworking still faces the same questions. How will it impact productivity? How will employees respond? What new challenges does a remote workforce create? What additional IT support and technology will be needed?
This research set out to examine the importance of all these questions. Because the survey coincided with the period in spring 2020 when European countries were locked down to prevent the spread of Covid-19, responses came from across the spectrum of remote working experiences. As a result, the survey gives a comprehensive picture of employee
feelings, from those who were already committed to remote working to those whose situation would discourage them from trying it in normal circumstances.
