The WDC has been practicing and researching remote working for over 20 years.

In 2019, before the Covid-19 pandemic, the WDC, in collaboration with the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway had started to examine remote working. This was prompted by a renewed interest in the practice largely driven by the need to retain talent, improving technology, the move to a low carbon economy and regional and rural development.


WDC-NUIG National Remote Working Surveys

Since 2019, the WDC has conducted three national large scale remote working surveys examining national attitudes to remote working at various times during the pandemic.

The third annual 2022 Remote Work Survey was conducted in April and results published in May 2022.
