Effect of telecommunications on the location of office employment
The face-to-face communications of office employees are classified and assessed for their suitability for transfer to new telecommunications media. This assessment is based on a series of psychological experiments and studies of users' attitudes. Large scale surveys of meetings enable the proportion which can be transferred to new media to be estimated. If this transfer were to occur, it might encourage the decentralisation of offices or departments from central business districts. The extent of this encouragement is considered, with the possibility of even more fundamental changes in office employment, such as working at home or in work centres near the home.
