Fórsa is hosting a webinar for members on Friday 25th September at 1pm, exploring the future for remote working from the perspective of workers, employers, communities and the economy.
‘Out of Office: Remote working after Covid 19’ will feature a panel of experts exploring issues like productivity, health and safety, work-life balance, and staying connected with colleagues. Our analysts include deputy editor of Silicon Republic Jenny Darmody, Ruth Morrissey of the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI) and Fórsa’s head of communications, Bernard Harbor.
A recent Fórsa survey examining attitudes around remote work has revealed a huge appetite for working from home, with more than 80% of respondents in favour, preferring a hybrid model with a blend of office-based work and remote activities.
The experience of remote working during the Covid-19 emergency has demonstrated that work can be carried out remotely in ways that are productive and cost-effective, all while being attractive to employers and their staff. Workers overwhelmingly value the flexibility that remote working can bring, while employers cite improved productivity and cost savings as potential benefits.
