National Work From Home Day approaches

Home working

This week marks our Work Wise Week, a week dedicated to shouting about the merits of remote and flexible working practices.

As part of the week-long initiative, tomorrow marks National Work From Home Day.

To honour the day, IT PRO will be conducting the great work from home experiment. We won't be getting on a train, bus or bicycle tomorrow morning to come to work. Instead, we'll be logging on remotely.

We plan to do everything just as we would normally, except in different surroundings. And we'll chart our progress whether good or bad as we go.

We'll also be bringing you lots of handy hints and tips as to how you can make flexible working work for your organisation both in terms of strategy and technology.

Will you be working from home tomorrow? Take part in our survey and let us know.
