ILO-Eurofound joint launch of report on 'Working anytime, anywhere: The effects on the world of work'
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is to launch a joint report with Eurofound entitled Working anytime, anywhere: The effects on the world of work on Wednesday, 15 February.
A press briefing by the lead authors of the report, the ILO’s Jon Messenger and Eurofound’s Oscar Vargas, will be held at 10:00 CET on Wednesday 15 February at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
At a time when the use of digital technology is constantly growing, the new research highlights opportunities and challenges of expanding telework.
The report shows that the use of modern communication technologies facilitates a better overall work-life balance but, at the same time, also blurs the boundaries between work and personal life, depending on the place of work and the characteristics of different occupations.
It synthesises research carried out by both organisations in 15 countries, including ten EU Member States as well as Argentina, Brazil, India, Japan and the United States.
The study also provides recommendations to accompany those sweeping changes.
