Transport Minister helps British businesses increase profitability by backing the ‘Anywhere Working’ initiative
With the world's largest sporting event coming to London this summer the government is urging people to work from home where possible to help alleviate London's transport system, which is expecting an extra 3 million journeys a day! We are now in a position where we have a greater choice over where and how we work thanks to the internet and the increasing sophistication of mobile devices, which means we can avoid lost working hours and the impact this has on profitability.
The Anywhere Working initiative, backed by the government, was launched at the beginning of this year to help British businesses see how they can benefit from flexible working.
British businesses are now in a position to see how technology can help them avoid loss of productivity due to unforeseen circumstances and planned events. In last winter's snowstorms UK businesses lost over £7 billion due to the lack of remote working opportunities and during the Olympics many companies in and around London will face business continuity issues.
Flexible working is now seen as critical to employer profitability and employee well-being as the current combination of economic, environmental and social factors all add to the pressure of staying afloat.
Be a part of this change and take the opportunity to re-invent the way you work.
