Summary
Teleworking is an up-to-date, groundbreaking and comprehensive assessment of teleworking. Based upon a conference at Brunel University, which was sponsored by BT and the European Commission, the book features contributions from a range of international and interdisciplinary perspectives. As well as an original analysis of the theoretical context of the post-industrial and postmodern world, the book also contains detailed empirical studies examining telworking in a number of different countries. Contributors explore many of the main issues in teleworking drawing on insights from business, economics, sociology and information systems. These include: conceptualising teleworking; the management of spatial, temporal and cultural boundaries; the possibility of the virtual organisation; integrating teleworking into an organisational perspective. Teleworking is a valuable introduction to teleworking and an important contribution to the debate on the future of the labour market
