James Dyson, British billionaire and businessman in reference to UKs plans to allow people to work from home said that he thinks that letting people work from home is ‘’staggeringly self defeating’’. The statement for the Times published on December 8.
Dyson thinks of it as a misguided approach, while UK is working to create and aiming at flexible working in their country.
In the composition Dyson wrote that his company knows how deeply hamstrung it’s to let workers work from home. He said,” It prevents the collaboration and in- person training that we need to develop new technology and maintain competitiveness against global rivals.
The UK government seems to have been working on creating flexible working arrangements for people be that from their first day at work. Also Dyson feels like working from home tactic would create a difference or increase the communication gap between the employers and the employee. He also says that it would be a part where the high growth and ambitious companies like Dyson Ltd would think and hesitate to take part in such activities when they have no control of where and how are the employees working.
While the UK government talked about the ‘science and technology superpower’
There is a rolling out of new legislation which will give workers the access to demand flexible working systems. Also earlier we got to know that JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon stated that working from homes reduce the decision making and slows the working efficiency and honesty of the employees.
The billionaire is referring work from home as staggeringly self defeating in respect to UK’s demand and efforts for the same for the people of their country. According to him it also prevents collaboration with various fields and interacting with different people or even might not create opportunities to the workers.
But accordingly it really depends on how you perceive or work things out for yourself. although the pass is tried to inspire flexible running in the united states, Dyson thinks that it’s a non conventional method on the way to “generate friction between employers and personnel” at some point of the ongoing global recession.
