‘Making Remote Work’ presents opportunities for Waterford

Expert Group Remote Working Report 2020Waterford Chamber has welcomed the publication by Tánaiste Leo Varadkar of the National Remote Working Strategy “Making Remote Work” which commits to an acceleration of the National Broadband Plan, investment in remote hubs, reviewing tax treatment and introducing legislative changes on rights to request remote working.

Writing to the Tanaiste after the announcement, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley said: “In light of Covid-19, a lot of us have become accustomed to working remotely and Government is right to acknowledge that this is the future of business.

“We now need to ensure this is funded correctly and that the Right to Request and Right to Disconnect supports flexibility, for both employers and employees, and are SME-friendly in their design.

“What is extremely important about today’s announcement is the examination of the National Broadband Plan. This is critical to the advancement of Waterford in terms of creating a circular link so underdeveloped areas of the city can be zoned for commercial purposes.

“Remote working paired with a National Hubs Strategy, could play a transformative role in reviving our towns, villages, and urban centre.”
