Westminster eForum

Supporting the growth of remote working - infrastructure, culture and security

Morning, Thursday, 19th April 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



As the UK approaches a ‘tipping point’, with remote working more prevalent than solely office-based working, this timely seminar will discuss the opportunities and challenges for employers and their staff - and implications for policy.


It is bringing together key policymakers and regulators with employers, technology and service providers, security and legal experts, and others affected by the trend.


Delegates will examine the latest developments in technology and work practices, assess the impact on organisational performance, and discuss what can be learnt from how organisations are rolling out remote working - including implementation challenges and issues for office cultures and working practices.


Discussion will also take into account latest developments in policy - including the new Europe-wide regulations on data protection and network security, as well as the impact so far of the right for employees to request flexible working.


With remote workers entitled to the same benefits and conditions as office-based employees, sessions will examine the legal, health and safety, and other issues that are emerging for remote workers and their organisations; how these are being tackled; and the impact on business productivity and employee well-being.


Further sessions focus on priorities for developing the national infrastructure to support the growth and efficiency of remote working.
