According to an employment study by Telewest Business, British workers are increasingly unwilling to disrupt their home lives and relocate for work.

The study found that people in the North and Scotland would rather stay close to their roots than follow perceived higher earning potential in the south.

“These findings send a clear signal to employers – people now believe that culture and attitude in the workplace are as important as salary,” says Stephen Beynon, managing director of Telewest Business.

Almost three-quarters of the 1,000 employees surveyed cited commuting distance as a strong influence on their decisions.

“While email, mobile phones and the internet began this shift, new communications services have the ability to completely change working patterns,” says Beynon.
