Geovation Greener Smarter Communities Challenge

Using Technology to divert work to remote locations in the uk

Identify the talent that is available in remote and rural locations in the uk and where there are skills such as accountancy, payroll, HR and legal advice etc that Government bodies currently locate in an expensive cities such as London where there are skill shortages. Move the work to less expensive rural or home working locations using technology and high quality broadband. Utilising the skills of those who cannot commute for one reason or another. Reducing cost of service overheads and emissions and giving work to those in remote locations. It would be good for the economy, the environment and society itself.
