The Committee would welcome your views on any or all of the issues covered in the terms of reference. In particular it would welcome views on:
- What do you think are the positive and negative impacts of Welsh Government’s remote working proposals on the bullets outlined below, and what is the evidence and reasons for those impacts?
- The economy and business;
- Town and city centres;
- Issues affecting the workforce, and skills
- Health (physical and mental) and wellbeing;
- Inequalities between different groups and different parts of Wales (including those areas of with poor connectivity);
- The environment; and
- The transport network and infrastructure.
- How can the benefits of remote working be maximised, and what can be done to mitigate any potential risks and negative impacts?
- Which parts of the Welsh economy or workforce would be particularly affected by remote working proposals, projects and initiatives?
- What do you think the equality impacts - both positive and negative - would be of the Welsh Government’s remote working proposals? What specific work needs to be undertaken to assess those impacts?
- How should Welsh Government work in partnership with the public sector, private sector and voluntary sector to deliver its remote working proposals?
- How should the success of measures to implement the remote working proposals be evaluated and monitored?
- What could Welsh Government learn from the approach taken in other parts of the UK, Europe and globally to support remote working and/or develop community hubs to support remote working? Are there any specific examples of evidence and research internationally that the Committee should be aware of?
