Recently a new tendency has appeared on the labour market, timidly in Belgium and in Italy, more in other coun tries: telework, through the use of linked computers. There are estimates that more of 60 % of the work implied in the production of goods is processing of information. This information is increasingly computerized. The possibility of teleworking is therefore huge in principle. The employer can benefit from savings in investments and consumption in buildings and furniture and a largest flexibility. For the worker, one invokes also the flexibility that allows for better conciliation of work, family obligations and leisure. The diminution of travel is to the advantage of the whole society by decreasing the pollution and bottlenecks and to the advantage of the worker in avoiding the loss of time and money, the fatigue and the stress. The different advantages for the worker also benefit to the employer that can hope increased productivity and quality of the work.
