Abstract

The prospect of employees being permitted to work at their homes offers the potential of significant benefits to employers, employees and the wider community. A survey of 360 employees in an Australian government organization revealed a great deal of interest in and potential for the concept. The extent to which potential benefits can be realized needs to be assessed in the context of the nature of the organization′s business, employee attitudes, union policies and attitudes and the flexibility of management. One way of determining the likelihood of success is to run a pilot programme of, say, 2 per cent of the workforce, studied in comparison with a control group.
