Identifying a ‘tipping point’ of mobility?

Client: Hotwire
There is a perceptible trend for remote and mobile working that is being driven by the increased availability of digital technology and new, more flexible working practices.
The Work Foundation was commissioned to explore the idea that this type of working may be reaching a “tipping point” – whereby it becomes more prevalent than traditional office-based work – and how the benefits could be made to outweigh the downsides for both individuals and employers.
To understand the development of these trends, we established a panel of leading academic and industry experts, using a Delphi approach, and surveyed over 500 managers. We were able to independently report that whilst technology is an enabler, people-centred approaches would need to be put in place to allow the true benefits to be realised.
