The majority of businesses are investing in new technology to change working practices, says a report by serviced office company Regus and business consultancy JBA.

More than two-thirds of businesses are implementing technological changes to their workplaces over the next three years such as networked computing (VOIP), video-conferencing and 24/7 remote access.

Some 28 per cent of companies say they will invest in practices such as flexible working and more than 40 per cent intend to change their workplace models to become more collaborative.

John Blackwell, chief executive of JBA, says: ‘From our report it’s clear that business leaders, focused on out-performing their competitors, are rising to the challenging times with radical changes.’

Of the 1,130 business leaders asked, 67 per cent said that investment in practices such as flexible working will have a positive organisational impact.

According to a survey from law firm Peninsula, employees spend around a quarter of the working day surfing the internet and using personal email.
