Work-from-home plea to firms

Companies are beng urged to take part in National Work from Home Day, being held on Friday.

Organised by not-for-profit organisation Work Wise UK, the event aims to demonstrate the benefits of home working. These include, according to Work Wise UK, reduced congestion on the roads as well as improved productivity.

Chief executive Phil Flaxton said: “Technology is enabling people to work virtually anywhere. National Work from Home Day is not an excuse for an extra day off, it is a serious attempt for people and organisations to try out home working.

“For many, there is absolutely no reason to waste hours commuting into central locations every day of the week.

“Why not work from home occasionally?”

The day is part of Work Wise Week, a major five-year initiative, supported by the TUC and CBI, to encourage the widespread adoption of new smarter working practices, such as home working, across the UK.
