Irish government announces supports for local digital hubs
The Government announced this week a series of new initiatives to support local digital hubs.
A voucher scheme will give remote workers free access to local digital hubs and provide at least 10,000 hot desk facilities free of charge to existing hub users and those availing the facilities for the first time.
The scheme will initially provide three days of hub use per person between now and the end of August.
“This scheme is designed to add remote working capacity at hubs and broadband connection points across the country, to make more space for remote workers and to improve the quality of the facilities and their services,” Ms. Humphreys said.
This initiative will assist organisations give employees the flexibility of remote working they are looking for, as per recent survey results.
If the survey is any sign to go by, this government scheme will support organisations attract and keep the talent. The survey figures revealed 17% of employees polled view flexibility as more important than salary and 69% would consider leaving their job if the organisation is not flexible to remote working.
Organisations now need to provide their employees with the right digital workspace solutions to ensure flexibility, security, consistency, and productivity when working from home, a local hub, a café and when back in the office.
