Remote Work in Ireland Employee Survey

Posted on 14 Oct 2019

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI) has recently launched the Remote Work in Ireland Employee Survey, which will inform an upcoming piece of research on Remote Work in Ireland as outlined in Ambition 4.2 (i) of Future Jobs Ireland 2019.  

This outline calls for the following: ‘undertake research on the prevalence and types of remote working arrangements within the Irish workforce, and the attitudes towards such working arrangements, as well as the factors which inhibit employers and employees from partaking in these arrangements.’

To guide this work, an Interdepartmental Steering Group has been formed with representatives across Government departments.  The final report will be completed in Q4 2019 and published shortly thereafter. It will include desk research, identification of key data sources and one-on-one consultation with key stakeholders to fulfil the ambition above.

To help inform this piece of research, all Irish employees are encourage to participate in this 2-minute anonymous survey, the aim of which is to capture the perspectives of employees across sectors of the Irish economy, regardless of whether they work remotely or not. This will form a vital element of the upcoming report on Remote Work in Ireland, so your input is appreciated.

Note: the deadline for participating in the survey is 30 October 2019.

Note: please also consider sharing this with your own networks / colleagues and employees.
