Careers: Half should work smarter by 2011

MINISTERS and business leaders are meeting at the start of May to discuss the progress of the first year of the Work Wise initiative to promote flexible working practices.

A group will discuss the results at the QEII Conference Centre, London, at an event coinciding with National Work Wise Week from May 16-22.

The remainder of the week will include regional events focusing on the impacts of smarter working on the environment, transport, staff welfare and employers. There will also be a National Work from Home Day on Friday, May 18.

A Work Wise spokesman said: ‘Work Wise UK is a national not-for-profit initiative to promote smarter working practices such as flexible, remote and mobile working, and working from home. The objective is for half the working population – 14 million workers – to have had the opportunity to work smarter by 2011.’
