Flexibility wins European eWeek Award!


Flexibility has won an award in the European Commission-backed eWeek 2001. We were awarded the prize in the category: Best Contribution to Public Awareness about ework.

Each year awards are made to the enterprises or activities which have made a substantial contribution to the development of the Information Society in Europe. 

The results were announced after presentations at a ceremony in Brussels on November 12. The final decision was made by a combination of a panel of expert judges, voting at the conference, and voting by the public.

Our entry was for not only the Flexibility website but also The Complete Guide to Flexible Working - the book we wrote that was published earlier this year - and other writings and activities undertaken by

And another nominee...

We're also pleased that a website conceived and developed by the Flexibility team, Fife Direct, was shortlisted in another category: Best Initiative Supporting Regional Development

Fife Direct was one of the two runners up. The prize went to a project in Kuusamo, Finland, which has created numerous teleworking jobs in this remote area. We will be reporting on this project in Flexibility shortly along with other case studies highlighted at the awards.

We are of course delighted to receive the award, and the recognition for Flexibility's work in promoting awareness of the new ways of working. 

And we'd like to thank all our readers, and in particular those who voted for us in the run-up to the awards.
