Olympics provides perfect opportunity for testing out flexible working
Over three quarters (80 per cent) of London businesses offer some form of teleworking to their employees, according to a new report launched today by recruitment specialists Harvey Nash plc and London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI)
“The Olympics provides the perfect opportunity for businesses to test out teleworking and what it can bring to a business.However, as more and more companies embrace flexible working practises we need to ensure that we have the infrastructure, such as high-speed broadband, in place to ensure that businesses aren’t limited in what they are trying to achieve by technological concerns.”
Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive of the LCCI said:
“Home working is clearly a growing subject for London companies as technology changes the way we live and work.Being flexible with how and where staff work can bring enormous benefits to a business and getting it right can add to the productivity of a firm as well as staff morale.”
