Rural Irish pubs may be transformed into remote-work hubs as part of the country’s five-year rural-development policy, the Daily Mail.com reported.
The policy, titled Our Rural Future, would have a fifth of public servants begin working remotely or from home by the end of 2021, according to the report. Four hundred remote-working hubs would be established in pubs across the nation, some designated just for public-sector workers, it added.
“As we emerge from Covid-19, the new policy is about maximizing a recovery for all parts of the country and giving a better quality of life to people who live and work in rural areas,” Rural and Community Development Minister Heather Humphreys was cited as saying.
The policy was released to the public on March 29.
