Needs of the home worker [Hull Daily Mail (England)]
(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ABOUT four million of us regularly work from home, according to statistics, which reveal an overall 13 per cent rise in the trend during the past five years.
Flexible working has become increasingly popular among commuters with computers and parents working on a part-time basis. And helping the area's home-workers to have greater control over their lives is Linden Homes, which recognises the needs of people with busy lifestyles.
The survey, carried out by the Trades Union Congress earlier this year, shows a 9.3 per cent rise in the number of men and woman who usually work from home in Yorkshire and Humberside, and a 9.1 per cent rise in the north east over the past five years.
With a selection of house designs across the region that incorporate space for a home office or study, Linden Homes is offering teleworkers a greater choice to meet that demand.
Sales director Steve Woomble said: With extremely busy lives juggling work, home, care and family, being able to enjoy the flexibility that having an office from home can offer is hugely attractive to many of our customers.
