Why is it important?

Telework has the best prospects of success if from the outset all the people involved know what to expect and are prepared to deal with any problems and fears associated with the new work culture. It is also important that distributed work arrangements are designed in compliance with national labour legislation.


I hope this article still finds readers, although much has changed since its publication. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has made telework more important than ever.
