Welsh Government seeks views on remote working hub locations


The Welsh Government has launched a survey to identify locations for remote working hubs, as part of its long-term aim to have 30% of Welsh workers working from, or near, home.

Covid-19 restrictions have meant fewer people are working in offices and the Welsh Government believes many people will want to continue to work remotely in the longer term. It says that this "has the potential to drive regeneration and economic activity in communities".

However, it recognises that home working is not viable for everyone and is exploring how a network of community-based remote working hubs could give people choices beyond a simple home/office split.

These hubs, within walking and cycling distance of people’s homes, could be used by public, private and third-sector employees.

They could also help encourage new partnerships to develop between Welsh Government, local government, industry, and others.

The intention is to develop a hybrid workplace model, where staff can work in the office, at home, or in a hub location.

The aim is that this will enable 30% or more of workers to work remotely, which the Welsh Government says, will help reduce congestion and pollution and improve work-life balance for employees and employers.

People can give their views on the location of the hubs via an interactive map, hosted by Commonplace

The survey will close on March 26, 2021.
