The way we work is changing – find out about this growing trend and how flexible work arrangements can benefit both employers and employees.

Remote working is fast becoming an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5 office based employment. The appearance of co-working spaces or hubs across the country is evidence of the expansion of this area. Both employers and employees are questioning the value or need to travel to work every day. Some employers are offering highly attractive job opportunities for people not to travel to head office.

With the array of cloud based services, there is less and less need for the daily commute. It saves money for the employer and employee, and increases productivity. There is also the positive impact on climate change – less people on the road, means less pollution. The rural economy can benefit from the increased local spend – less money spent on travel costs, and more time for leisure, equates to more money spent on recreation and entertainment.

This half day conference aims to highlight the benefits for both employers and employees, and provides case study examples of remote working in action. Speakers include Shopify, AirBnB and Grow Remote. You will take away key tips and advice on how to make remote working work for you.

Free Hotdesking available at the Junction during Enterprise Week for those attending the conference.
