Abstract: Teleworking is an alternative form of work organisation that incorporates information technology and human resources. The social and earnings impact of teleworking on the economy are sometimes characterised by simple and dismissive arguments. This research is an initial attempt to quantify the results of primary data gathered in one of the poorest EU regions (East Macedonia and Thrace (EM&T) Region, Greece); the findings will also reveal a profile of companies that could successfully deploy a sustainable strategy for teleworking. Although small or medium size companies prevail in this region, almost 1/3 of them have, or, could easily, acquire the essential attributes to carry out teleworking to a certain extent.

Keywords: teleworking characteristics; job characteristics; employee characteristics; task coordination; task control; training; infrastructure; Greece; SMEs; small and medium-sized enterprises. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
