Peter Thomson, director of research at the Telework Association, said that many people believe it is not possible to work remotely because either other workers or their manager have said the role is not suitable for it, but this may not necessarily be the case.
His comments followed the publication of a report by Work Wise UK which showed that the growth of homeworking has stalled slightly, with 12.8 per cent of staff undertaking this in 2010, compared with 12.9 per cent the year before.
Mr Thomson explained: "Our research shows that 50 per cent of jobs can be done partly from home. A portion of most jobs, even hands-on jobs, can be done remotely."
The expert added that, even where there is not the option to work remotely, most jobs can offer a degree of flexibility insofar as working hours and benefits are concerned.
