According to a survey conducted by O2 to support the launch of its Joined Up People strategy, 25 per cent of firms questioned did not have any technology in place to accompany flexible working opportunities.
Furthermore, there were just over a quarter of businesses (26 per cent) which had established a remote working solution for their staff to take advantage of.
Commenting on the figures, Claire Darley, head of small business sales at O2, was keen to stress the importance of having flexible working options open to staff.
She explained: "By allowing employees to be smarter about the way that they work and giving them the tools they need, we believe that many small businesses can actually deliver on some of the key business objectives they are setting themselves."
Transport minster Norman Baker also pointed out recently that, in his opinion, allowing a workforce to operate flexibly is now "simply the smart thing to do".
