Telework transitions and the quality of life


Chapter 17 by Brynin and Haddon outlines some of the current controversies and debates surrounding the definition and prevalence of telework. They have rather neatly developed a categorisation of telework that makes use of elements of location and technology to demonstrate the breadth of work practices that could in some sense be considered ‘telework’. They go on to show that there are different types of people within each of the different forms of telework, suggesting that at least some forms of telework reflect historical occupational divisions and structures.
