Teleworking and Globalisation Paperback
Part of the IES Reports series
From homeworking to international call-centres to offshore data processing, the introduction of new information and communications technologies is transforming both the nature of work, and where it is carried out, but traditional economic tools are poorly designed for measuring these new trends.
Drawing on experience and comprehensive data analysis, IES researchers have developed the approach discussed in this volume, making it possible to compare trends in teleworking and identify which countries are successfully attracting the new jobs, and which risk losing employment.
This allows policy-makers to identify risks and opportunities and to identify both competitors and potential collaborators in the new global information economy.
