Breaking news from ihotdesk, the home of IT outsourcing in London:
UK businesses should consider flexible working policies, according to an employment solutions expert.

UK businesses should consider flexible working policies, according to an employment solutions expert.

Caroline Waters, director of employment policy at BT, said that British employers need to adjust to a workforce that wants to work from home.

"Just in this country alone, 1.1 billion hours are spent just in getting to work. Does that sound like an economy for the 21st century? I don't think so," she added.

"Flexibility and being hot on the green agenda allows you to reach out and get the best people who all have different perspectives."

Ms Waters went on to say that the reason managers want their employees close to them is because they think it gives them control.

According to figures obtained by Work Wise UK and the AA, the average British commuter spends almost 29 days each year travelling to work.

Over a working lifetime, this equates to more than five years.
