Abstract and Keywords
Remote working has many synonyms—such as teleworking, telecommuting, or virtual working. It is often considered to be enabled by advanced information and communications technologies which allow the electronic transfer of information, so that workers can communicate and coordinate tasks in multiple locations and asynchronously. It is the purpose of this article to explore the nature, consequences, and management of remote working. The article starts by examining the incidence of remote working, the major aspects of remote work, and why this form of working is attractive. It then moves on to explore workers' experience of remote work. The article also examines issues in the coordination of remote teams and communication between remote workers. The final section examines the management of remote workers.
