• Australia Needs Home-Based Employment

    Owen Thomas     |      December 19, 2008

    The idea of home-based employment has truly come of age.

    Technology has evolved to a point where much of the work currently done in centralised office blocks can now be done at home. However, much of the benefit of a remote workplace is not being realised. Rural communities are starved of people who move to evermore bloated cities. Society is reluctant to move away from an economic and social model that is now, more than ever, just an anachronism.

    Home-based employment has the power to change Australian society for the better. Not only does it benefit people whose work adapts to a remote work setting, but it has flow on effects that yield positive consequences to remote communities and large cities alike.
