The widespread rollout of broadband in the UK has helped more people to work form home, says one industry expert.

Not-for-profit initiative Work Wise UK, claims that technological advances, such as the internet, have helped those finding it difficult get back into work do so, by making the most of teleworking options.

Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK, said that people who are carers or with disabilities have benefited greatly from the widespread rollout of broadband.

"By working from home, whether they run their own business or work for an employer, they can actually get back into the work pool and technology has allowed that to happen," he explained.

Work Wise UK recently reported that working from home "significantly improves productivity", enabling businesses to be "more competitive".

The organisation says that teleworking can also enhance an employees' work-life balance, providing them with "added health and leisure benefits".

According to research carried out by BT Business, there are now more than two million home-based businesses in the UK.
