Researchers from the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway and the Western Development Commission have revealed that almost one third of workers are willing to move to a new job to secure their remote working preferences.
The findings are from the third annual National Remote Working Survey, led by Professor Alma McCarthy and Noreen O’Connor at NUI Galway, and Tomás Ó Síocháin and Deirdre Frost at the Western Development Commission.
The survey gathered responses from more than 8,400 employees, in late April and early May, on their current experience of remote working.
One of the findings suggest that Carbon emissions from travel could be slashed by up to 73 per cent through a combination of remote working and the introduction of electric vehicles.
Deirdre Frost from the WDC has been giving more details to Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew.
