ICT-based mobile work


form of employment where workers can do their job from any place at any time, supported by modern technologies // 2. work carried out at least partly and on a regular basis outside a person’s ‘main office’, whether the latter is the employer’s premises or a customised home office, using ICT to access the company's shared computer systems

Context: Info

ICT-based mobile work is largely employee-driven. Workers’ motivation to engage in it is often bound up with a desire to commute less and so save time that could be used for different activities. If they organise their workflow and fulfilment of tasks well, ICT-based mobile work can improve work–life balance. Employers use ICT-based mobile work to increase flexibility in work organisation and introduce innovative work practices, hoping to achieve efficiency and productivity gains through the best use of time. As ICT-based mobile work becomes more common for specialists, knowledge workers and management, it may help employers to attract skilled labour. Costs can also be cut by reducing office space.
