General Information : 

Four separate reports on the implementation of teleworking have been
published in the latest issue of the European Journal of Engineering
for Information Society Applications (EJEISA), which is available on
the NECTAR Information Update at: 

URL: http://www.nectar.org/journal/02.htm 

The four reports are: 

- Colin Coulson-Thomas on implementing teleworking. The world of work
is undergoing a revolution brought about by the application of the
converging technologies of the information age. In order to take
advantage of the new opportunities offered y electronic commerce, a
wide choice of new methods of working must be examined. Colin
Coulson-Thomas of the NECTAR Editorial Board considers the option and
present results form the COBRA Project; - Serge Le Roux & Nicole
Turbé-Suetens on trade unions and the development of telework. Unions
are generally considered an inhibitor to the development of telework.
This article seeks to find the reasons for this misconception and to
show that unions do not impede the implementation of the new methods
of working made possible by information and communication
technologies; - Monica Blake on teleworking from the teleworker's
perspective. After describing the positive aspects of teleworking, it
looks at the down side and suggests ways in which good management
practice can alleviate some of the problems that teleworkers might
encounter; - Horace Mitchell on the use of the web in teleworking.
Horace Mitchell, Programme Director of European Telework Development,
looks at how some low-budget websites deliver excellent results for
their owners and target audiences, while many high-budget online
projects either struggle to attain a critical mass of users or
generate more brickbats than plaudits. 

EJEISA has grown out of the NECTAR project, which disseminates the
public results of the EU Telematics Engineering Sector and provides
comment on these results and related topics.
