Participants sought for Remote Working Survey

Members of the public are being asked to give their experience and preferences for remote working and insights on how remote working is impacting career choices in a new survey led by NUI Galway and the Western Development Commission.

The survey will gather data on employees’ experiences and preferences for remote working and assess how remote working is impacting their career choices.

The survey is led by Professor Alma McCarthy and Noreen O’Connor at NUI Galway, and Tomás Ó Síocháin and Deirdre Frost at the Western Development Commission.

Building on two previous annual national surveys undertaken by the team, the 2022 study will provide insights on how remote working has changed employees work and employment experiences.

Tomás Ó Síocháin, CEO of the Western Development Commission, said: “Breaking the link between work and location has been transformative and while challenges remain in ensuring equality of opportunity for all regardless of location, this survey is really important to inform the decision making about balanced future development in our country, and helping the transition to a low carbon economy. The development of with between 200 and 300 hubs already on the platform illustrates the ongoing demand for remote work, for hybrid work and for suitable work facilities close to where people live.”

The remote working study findings will be available to inform employers about employee experiences of remote working. The research team will provide recommendations for employers on how to better manage remote working following the Covid-19 crisis as well as more generally.

The research team will analyse the findings of the 2022 national remote working survey and make them publicly available on both NUI Galway’s Whitaker Institute and the Western Development Commission websites in May 2022. The report and key statistics from the first and second national annual surveys are also available on these websites.
