The NBN and Flexible Working Arrangements

nbn-and-flexible-working-arrangementsAustralia, the NBN and flexible working arrangements: A perfect match

The NBN or National Broadband Network has been steadily rolling out all over Australia since 2009.  In that time over 1.2M premises are NBN ready.  Not sure what the NBN is? This might help…

The nbn™ network is Australia’s new landline phone and internet network. It’s designed to provide you with access to all the benefits of fast and reliable internet services, wherever you live.

Besides providing our homes with internet speeds that finally rival the rest of the developed world, the NBN also provides employers and in turn employees with much better remote working prospects.  With a rock solid, super-fast broadband connection, the NBN and flexible working arrangements can finally make working at home a reality for millions of Australian knowledge workers.

Check out the infographic below for key NBN statistics and how it is expected to affect flexible working arrangements in Australia:

This infographic is a fantastic insight into how the NBN and flexible working arrangements are so closely linked and we are looking forward to the rollout delivering more and more flexible working opportunity.  Given the Australian Federal Government has mandated it will have 12% of it’s workforce teleworking by 2020, up from approx. 7% currently, we at School Hours can’t wait to see this eventuate and are hoping for more developments in this space, after all it is the future of work.
