One of the obvious potential benefits of the National Broadband Network (NBN) is that it should make it easier to work from home or adopt more flexible hours. A new survey suggests that Australian employers might take time to adjust to that idea, with just 20% saying they saw the ability to offer a different employment model as a major potential benefit of the high-speed network.
The survey by Macquarie Telecom covered 540 companies across the country. 15% said they were likely to change their approach, while 5% said they would definitely. On the upside, 30% were unsure, which might be 30% ripe for conversion once the NBN spreads beyond its current boundaries and the political bickering calms down a little.
