Smarter Business on Vodafone IE

Stimulating regional economic growth

Stimulating regional economic growth

"Smart working is flexible or remote working from home or a digital hub.

 It is having a positive effect on rural economic recovery. It is also providing a real solution to the pressures on our cities. The research examines the economic and social value of smart working in six vibrant digital hubs.

These are: Carlow, Kilkenny, Skibbereen, Tralee, Dundalk and Drogheda.

The research shows how businesses have set up locally at a lower cost and with far more ease than in a city. Talent retention and productivity levels are higher because people live nearby, they have shorter commute times and want to stay in their local areas - they are home. "
