Great interview Helen, It's interesting to see this from both perspectives! I'm a big fan of virtual workers and continue to believe that it's a great way to improve both productivity and morale. More small businesses should consider regardless of whether employees request it or not. If a small business is looking for a competitive advantage right now, this is surely one way to succeed, plus the technology is now both cheap and easy to implement. I would go so far as to say that sooner or later, remote/virtual workers will become the norm. Well done Philip, Jennifer and everyone at Richard Place Dobson and thanks for sharing your story with us.

Hi Niall,

As both a virtual worker myself and someone who obviously works with them, I'm a big fan of this style of working too! It provides flexibility for employees and lower costs for employers. The downside is hard to see!

I interviewed my niece and her boss for this article. Jennifer is an accountant who lives and works in Ireland. Her employers, a firm of Chartered Accountants, are based in the UK. It's easy when you know how!
