The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation is seeking views from employees on remote working.
A 2-minute anonymous survey has been launched to capture the perspectives of employees across sectors, regardless of whether they work remotely or not.
The results of this survey will feed directly into research, which is being delivered under Ambition 4.2 of Future Jobs Ireland – ‘Foster participation in the labour force through flexible working solutions’. The research will seek to understand the prevalence and types of remote working arrangements within the Irish workforce, the attitudes towards such arrangements, the factors which influence employers and employees to partake in such arrangements.

The end result of this project will be a cohesive research paper on the prevalence of and attitudes towards remote work in Ireland. The research will also consider relevant international policies related to remote working. This will help to inform the future policy implications for Ireland. This will be completed in Q4 2019 and will be published shortly thereafter.
