THE CONCEPT AND ROLE OF TELEWORKING IN THE INFORMATION SOCIETY
The aim of the article is to present the concept and role of teleworking. It discusses opportunities to use information technology to activate individuals who face the threat of professional exclusion, the disabled, those on leave from work to raise children, or for other reasons connected with the household. It also shows teleworking as a new property of modern organisations, one that has arisen thanks to the dynamic growth of information-communications technology. The article looks at the opportunities and the threats telework brings about. It presents both national and international experience and the ever widening virtualisation of economic activity which would clearly indicate that teleworking will become an essential complement to traditional forms of work organisation.
