A Telelocation is a hybrid of work and home. Organisations and individuals need to be very careful about any assumptions each is making around this very sensitive area. The English have long had a saying " An Englishman's home is his castle ", and traditionally we have tended to maintain a clear separation between work and home life. Teleworking challenges all those positions

Systematic and thorough preparation, undertaken far enough in advance of implementation, should ensure that Telelocations are as suitable and safe as other working environments. What is clear from the evidence to date is that many ad hoc schemes risk future fall out due to a failure to deal positively with some of the more difficult issues.
