Remote Over-Workers: Stressed and Alone

A session at Net:Work 2011

  • Carolyn Axtell

Thursday 8th December, 2011

9:50am to 10:10am (PST)

For those who have never worked from home, the idea sounds ideal. Wi-Fi, slippers and sitting on the couch are images conjured in their minds. The reality, however, is far from those blissful images. Are we, in fact, doing ourselves and future generations of workers a disservice by even allowing remote working? In this session, we'll hear the concerning results from a study conducted by academics at Sheffield University and supported by mobility enabler iPass. The study and its results will be revealed for the first time in public at this session.
