What are the benefits and challenges of telework in communication technologies and financial services?

ILO Global Dialogue Forum explores how teleworking can provide a better work-life balance for employees, lead to greater productivity for employers and help governments promote inclusive job opportunities.

 

Thesynergyonline Economics Bureau

 

GENEVA : Telework is a growing form of working arrangement enabled by information and communication technologies (ICTs) whose potential benefits are increasingly recognized and promoted by governments, employers and workers alike.

 

A Global Dialogue Forum organized by the ILO in Geneva from 24 to 26 October brought together representatives of governments, employers and employees from around the world to discuss policies and practices that can address decent work challenges and maximize the benefits of teleworking in the information and communications technology services (ICTS) and financial services sectors.

Participants agreed that teleworking can provide numerous work and social benefits. "Worker benefits can vary from shorter commutes, lower work-related personal expenses and better work-life balance, including a better ability to balance professional and care responsibilities, and more work opportunities," they said in a points of consensus document issued at the end of the Forum.

 

"Employers can benefit from increased productivity, lower overhead costs, and access to a larger and more diverse, motivated and skilled labour pool. For governments, teleworking can be a strategy to address urban congestion and environmental problems, and to promote inclusive employment opportunities for all."

 

However, teleworking in ICTS and financial services can pose a number of sector-specific and decent work challenges, including issues related to cybersecurity, privacy or the exposure of confidential information. In the absence of appropriate arrangements, workers can face psychosocial problems related to isolation and blurred lines between work and private life. They can have less access to training and perceive a lack of career development. Occupational safety and health conditions are also more difficult to monitor and control in teleworking arrangements.

Employers can benefit from increased productivity Teleworking in ICTS and financial services can pose a number of sector-specific and decent work challenges
Teleworking is not as prevalent in South Africa Mr Holomisa also wondered about the question of working hours
Andy Kerr, Deputy General Secretary of the UK's Communications Workers Union described the UK as "quite advanced" in teleworking
Telework in the two sectors and beyond is also "an alternative for people with disabilities
In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been encouraging companies to support workers who want to telework as a means of including people who have previously been shut out of the labour market  

 

Talking to government, employer and worker representatives attending the meeting, ILO News found that country situations and needs differ considerably with respect to telework.
Telework: Opportunities and challenges

 

"Teleworking is not as prevalent in South Africa. We don't even have a proper definition of what telework entails and as a result we don't have legislation that governs telework. We would like the ILO to facilitate research to assist us with coming up with that definition and also with legislation because while there are advantages, there are also questions and challenges," said South Africa's Deputy Minister of Labour, Nkosi S.P. Holomisa.

Mr Holomisa also wondered about the question of working hours. "What happens there? Who determines what these are – is it a question of the hours or output that is considered when deciding remuneration? Questions of basic conditions, and, of course, the question of if the worker lives in a country different from that of his employer. Telework must be managed and regulated so we do not find ourselves taken by surprise."

 

Andy Kerr, Deputy General Secretary of the UK's Communications Workers Union described the UK as "quite advanced" in teleworking. "We've got some good regulations in place in the two sectors and we want to make sure basic rights such as health and safety and workers' rights are extended into other companies and industries," he said.

 

"Because different regions and countries are at different stages, we are looking to the ILO and its members to gather further research and data on telework, and to share best practices. We want to meet again within two years – perhaps as a smaller body – to go in-depth in order to get a global ILO agreement further down the line."

That view was shared by Ecuador's Minister for Labour and Employment, Leonardo Berrezueta Carrion. "The recommendation from Ecuador is to think about the future of work in the next 20 years, especially in the role that ILO has in supporting member states with technical assistance and the development of international forums to create a new international regulation that concerns teleworking."

 
 

Telework in the two sectors and beyond is also "an alternative for people with disabilities, deprived of their freedom of mobility, mothers at the stage of developing attachment with their children and the elderly who do not have access to job opportunities. But, above all, to the youth between 18 and 26 years old," Carrion added.

 

Dasun Nalinda Kodithuwakku Kankanamge, Manager, Support Services and Information Technology at The Employers' Federation of Ceylon, said there is growing interest among young people and employers in telecommuting in Sri Lanka.

 

"From the employers' perspective, companies benefit as most of the businesses in Sri Lanka are located in the central city of Colombo, where it can take an hour and a half to travel 10km because of traffic," he said. "It also benefits industries such as ICTS, where, for example, we are the main suppliers to the UK Stock Exchange System. But when it comes to the financial sector, it is quite resistant as our legal system doesn't highlight teleworking anywhere because it is new. The main challenge for employers is how they will safeguard themselves in the legal framework."

 

In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been encouraging companies to support workers who want to telework as a means of including people who have previously been shut out of the labour market.

 

About 10 per cent of the total workforce at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (not just the two sectors) telework, according to Masahiro Kajiwara, Senior Manager with the company's General Affairs Department (Human Resources).

 

"As a company, we have organized an environment in order that staff can easily take up telework. The challenge is that the pick-up rate is still very low and so we are still in the process of evolution."

 

Debt burden mounts as telecom
operators get into price war

Thesynergyonline Comunications Bureau

 
NEW DELHI, SEPTEMBER 28 : Even as the telecom industry finds itself in a tariff war with entry of a major player, an ASSOCHAM-KPMG paper has pointed towards the operators grappling with a huge debt burden of Rs 3.80 lakh crore, reinforcing a case for rationalisation of taxes and other levies along with spectrum charges.
 
The telecom operators have an accumulated debt of around INR3.8 lakh crore. An additional customs duty of 10 per cent will lead to an increase in cumulated duty to 29.44 per cent, reveals the joint study.

" Even though consumers are having a last laugh with competitive offers from the major players , the service providers need to penetrate further into the fast expanding data market and create a volume that would make their cash flow running, " ASSOCHAM Secretary General Mr D S Rawat said.

Simplification and rationalization of tax regime will provide required financial stability to Indian telecom industry. Presently, multiple charges and taxes are levied on the sector in addition to the charges paid by other industries (such as corporate tax, VAT, etc.). Spectrum Usage Charges (SUC) in India are comparatively higher than other economies, noted ASSOCHAM-KPMG joint study.

Huawei opens global service center in India

Thesynergyonline Communications Bureau

 

 

NEW DELHI, India, AUGUST 26 : "Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision unborrowed, and the response they received — hatred. The great creators — the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors — stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. The first motor was considered foolish. The airplane was considered impossible. The power loom was considered vicious. Anesthesia was considered sinful. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won."
― Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

And so Huawei's global service center (GSC) in Bengaluru was inaugurated on Friday by Mr Manoj Sinha, the Minister of State (I/C) for Communications and Minister of State for Railways of the Government of India. On the occasion Mr Manoj Sinha said, "I would like to congratulate Huawei on their commitment to pursue their 'Make in India' vision. The ICT landscape in India is growing every day and such initiatives by technology majors like Huawei will accelerate the growth of the ICT industry in India. Huawei's Global Service Center at Bangalore, will be one of their four GSCs globally.

Telecom firms seek clarity on GST on
value added services: ASSOCHAM


NEW DELHI, JULY 24 :
"When the meaning is unclear there is no meaning."
- Marty Rubin

As prospects for passage of the Goods and Services Tax Bill in Parliament improve, the telecom industry has impressed the government to come out with a clear cut position with regard to levy of taxes on Value Added Services (VAS) even as the firms across the entire value chain look forward to a smooth transition to much awaited GST, an ASSOCHAM-KPMG Paper has said.
"Given the broad framework of GST, it is expected that even under the proposed GST regime, the telecom service providers may face significant challenges. For the first time , both the Centre and State governments will have powers to tax services …The proposed GST law should support the government's overall initiative of ease of doing business and offer a simplified tax regime to telecom service providers," the paper pointed out.

Certain VAS such as ring tones are regarded as entertainment under certain states 'entertainment tax laws and are therefore subject to taxation. "Since the service tax is also liable on the revenue generated from rendering such services, there is a dual levy in the form of service tax and entertainment tax".

ASSOCHAM Secretary General Mr D S Rawat said the government should clarify the applicable tax on such value added services. This would help move the industry move seamlessly to the GST, adding to the dynamic growth of the sector.

The KPMG, in its note said, the "growth of the sector is highly dependent on a forward looking policy and regulatory environment that fosters investment, innovation and productivity. However, the industry is grappling with a number of challenges around complexity in policy, regulatory and taxation framework that impacts implantation of well-intentioned ideas".
The paper said the GST law should provide clear and comprehensive provisions with respect to coverage of 'telecom services 'for providing clarity of levy of taxes on VAS, infrastructure sharing and e-commerce transactions, since these transactions could have different treatment under GST.

Besides, the joint ASSOCHAM-KPMG Paper said, clear and specific place of supply rules should be notified for telecom services, specifically for pre-paid services, B2B transactions, B2C transactions, mobile wallet, VAS etc. "This will help determine the State in which telecom services would be deemed to have been provided".

Moreover, there should be simplification of overall tax procedures such as a single unified registration for all the states, sharing of tax revenue from telecom service among central and state government without involvement of operators.

ASSOCHAM appeals TRAI to restore
pricing flexibility to license TSPs

Thesynergyonline Communications Bureau

NEW DELHI, JULY 18 :
Industry body ASSOCHAM has strongly opposed any restriction by way of a telecom service provider (TSP) agnostic platform and rather suggested the TRAI to restore the pricing flexibility to licensed TSPs and urgent review of differential pricing regulation.

In a statement ASSOCHAM said allowing technical and commercial flexibility with a level playing field for all businesses in the Internet value chain, including the telecom operators will promote the goals of broad band connectivity, attract investment and innovation, thus allowing consumer choice for internet access.

Therefore, the policy framework should encourage variety of Business Models under its forbearance regime with regulatory oversight, rather than mandating or prohibiting certain practices.

Telemedicine market in India may
cross $32 million by 2020: Study

Thesynergyonline Communications Bureau


In a world where practically everything is now done on the Internet, medicine is certainly no exception. Simply put, telemedicine is the application and delivery of healthcare services and medical information using telecommunication. Telemedicine with the advent of the Internet, can now be performed using wireless communication.
Telemedicine (also referred to as "telehealth" or "e-health") allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology. Telemedicine allows patients in remote locations to access medical expertise quickly, efficiently and without travel
"Telemedicine provides more efficient use of limited expert resources who can "see" patients in multiple locations wherever they are needed without leaving their facility. In developed and developing countries telemedicine offers a reduced cost solution to delivering remote care when and where it is needed without the building and staffing added facilities.
"Telemedicine also reduces isolation that clinicians can experience in small medical facilities in distant locations. Telemedicine allows local practitioners to consult with their peers and with clinical experts when needed. Telemedicine further allows them to participate in grand rounds and education opportunities.
There is an urgent need for speeding up the process of building up healthcare infrastructure capacities especially in the rural areas.
 

 

NEW DELHI, JUNE 05 : India's telemedicine market which has been growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 20 per cent holds the potential to cross $32 million (mn) mark by 2020 from the current level of over $15 mn, noted a recent study by apex industry body ASSOCHAM.

"Efforts need to be made to create an overarching framework covering three levels namely – primary healthcare centres (PHC) to district, district to referral/super speciality hospitals and issues vis-à-vis hardware/software requirements, bandwidth and connectivity need to be fixed," noted the study titled 'Promoting Rural Healthcare: Role of telemedicine,' conducted by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).

"Growth of a sustainable telemedicine network in India depends upon introduction of legal frameworks, development of national e-health policies, trained human resource and regular funding," highlighted the study prepared by the ASSOCHAM Economic Research Bureau (AERB).

Improved access to specialists, increased patient satisfaction with care, improved clinical outcomes, reduction in emergency room utilisation, cost savings are certain key benefits of telemedicine.

"With limited resources and much of population living in remote, rural areas (68 per cent), telemedicine has the potential to revolutionise delivery of healthcare in India," said Mr D.S. Rawat, secretary general of ASSOCHAM while releasing the findings of the chamber's study.

"Providing quality healthcare to a large segment of population which does not have access to speciality physicians because of factors like geographic limitations or socio-economic conditions is the greatest challenge faced by the healthcare sector in India," said Mr Rawat.

During the course of past decade (2005-09) the number of sub-centres across India has increased by about 6,300, the number of primary health centres (PHCs) has increased by about 1,800 and there has been a rise of over 2,000 in the number of community health centres, noted the ASSOCHAM study highlighting extent of growth and development of rural healthcare in India.

"There is a shortage of about 32 per cent in terms of the number of CHCs in India at present while there is 23 per cent shortage of PHCs in the country."

Amid states, it is Jharkhand, West Bengal and Madhya Pradesh face maximum shortage to the extent of 66 per cent, 58 per cent and 42 per cent in terms of PHCs.

While Bihar (91 per cent), Andhra Pradesh (united) and Karnataka (41 per cent) are facing highest shortfall in terms of required number of CHCs.

Late discovery of ailments, lack of experience in healthcare providers in rural areas and huge amount of time being spent in reaching urban health facilities make rural populace more vulnerable than their urban counterparts.

As such there is an urgent need for speeding up the process of building up healthcare infrastructure capacities especially in the rural areas.

"This could also been looked upon as an unexplored opportunity by private healthcare industry, here telemedicine has an important role to play by offering the possibility for remote diagnostics as technology will extend the reach of healthcare services and ease the pressure on overburdened systems."

OPINION

Level, is spelled the same forward and backwards. Those on the upper level can always hit the bottom, and those on the bottom can always rank to the top. Envision your footprints up there already trailing, and your feet will soon follow suit." - Anthony Liccione

"Ever since I was young I enjoyed solving puzzles and having the pleasure to see the bigger picture afterwards. But even after all that, I found that life could be the most challenging puzzle we have to face. It's one of those things that even if you have all the pieces and could see the whole picture, it still takes time and patience to solve it. At times, we feel more at ease not knowing the whole picture, not knowing the whole level of difficulty or number of pieces that we're missing, but just building up one piece at a time. The problem with this approach is that the only clues that we have for matching two pieces are the shape and a small glimpse of the image. We so often find comfort in building up the corners and the borders but very rarely do we adventure in the middle of the puzzle. We'd rather work little by little holding on to our safe border and only move towards the center when the pieces are still in touch with our borders or roots. On the other hand, you could be one of those people that just jumps in the middle and builds up on every piece you have in order to get small portions of the truth of the bigger picture every now and then. Not having your borders or corners in place might mean that you don't need to know your limits in order to realize that the puzzle will one day come to an end. Nevertheless, every piece is equally important and it gets handed to you at a time where you have at least some matching piece. That doesn't mean you should only focus on one point or piece and limit your possible connections. Spread out and you will find even more connections. The truth of the puzzle information comes in different shapes and colors but in the end it's all connected. Information might be divided, spread out in different areas, different people, different experiences. What's important to remember is that every piece is meant for you. You might throw it on the side now and use it later, but it will forever remain a part of your bigger picture. Work on your puzzle, with patience and care in moving forward and with a hopeful spirit that it will all work out in the end for your highest good!" - Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache

 

NEW DELHI, MAY 21 : Counting a number of milestones achieved by the NDA in the telecom sector on completion of two years of the Narendra Modi Government, IT and Communication Minister, Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad said at an ASSOCHAM meeting he would show firmness on the issue of quality of telecom service as he is answerable to the consumers and Parliament.


Addressing the ASSOCHAM Telecom Summit in New Delhi, Mr Prasad said now that the government has done its bit to address several concerns of the industry with regard to spectrum availability and making available government buildings for signal towers, the industry is duty-bound to "reinforce " its network.

"I have done my duty; you need to do your duty as well, "the minister told top industry leaders. In response to an industry's commitment to do "self-regulation." Mr Prasad was categorical in reiterating that he was committed to monitor the work in this regard. He said in his effort to take the sector to a new level, the government has achieved a 'modest' success.

"Self–regulation, I do not understand, I will show firmness, will continue to monitor, "the progress of the network expansion and reinforcement by the telecom industry. Mr Prasad said he would be fair to all the stakeholders. "I shall be biased in favour of none; I shall be prejudiced against none."
The minister emphasized that one of the major achievements of the NDA Government has been to correct the image of the 'Sanchar Bhawan' which had remained earlier in the news for the wrong reasons.

He said entry of middlemen in Sanchar Bhawan has been banned but 'whatever doable will be done, whatever is not doable will not be done. I am clear about that.'

Enumerating various measures with regard to spectrum allocation in sufficient quantity and in a transparent manner, the minister said in the next two-three months, the government would go in for the largest auction of 2,000 MHz and after which there would not be any grievance on spectrum.

On the ambitious programme to take the fibre optic network under the 'Bharat Net' programme to 2.5 lakh village panchayats by 2018, he said the government is making every effort to meet the deadline under his personal strict supervision.

Besides, guidelines would soon be issued on the 'Virtual Mobile Network' under which an entity can operate without spectrum in partnership with the existing players.

On modernisation of post offices, he said over 21 664 branches have been connected with the core banking solution and the figure would reach 25,000 by next month making the India Post the largest core banking player, surpassing even the State Bank of India.

By March next, Postal payments banks would be made operational as the postal network is getting digital with facilities like ATM dispensers. Top domestic and global financial services firms including Deutsche Bank and Citibank have shown interest in partnering with the initiative.

Speed Post has been the biggest partner in the fast expanding e-commerce 'explosion' that is reaching even the hinterland, Mr Prasad said. Similar response has been forthcoming in the initiative to open call centres in small towns with an offer of 48,000 seat capacity, for which tender process is underway.

Welcoming investments and the interest shown by Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is visiting India, Mr Prasad said where else the global firms would get this kind of expansion opportunity. India would be soon moving towards the 50 crore smart phone mark from the present 27 crore, which is more than the population of several European countries.

The Minister was presented with the day's deliberations of the ASSOCHAM Telecom Summit which was also addressed by Chairman of the TRAI, Mr R.S. Sharma in the morning.

I am constantly trying to communicate something incommunicable, to explain something inexplicable, to tell about something I only feel in my bones and which can only be experienced in those bones. Basically it is nothing other than this fear we have so often talked about, but fear spread to everything, fear of the greatest as of the smallest, fear, paralyzing fear of pronouncing a word, although this fear may not only be fear but also a longing for something greater than all that is fearful.- Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena

And so with inbuilt camera and otherInternet-enabled features, sales of smart phones in India are set to shoot up to 160 million in FY' 17 from 100 million in FY' 16 on the back of prices becoming affordable for a larger number of people, coupled with replacement of ordinary phones with the smart devices at a rapid pace, an ASSOCHAM study has pointed out.

"It's easier for a rich man to ride that camel through the eye of a needle directly into the Kingdom of Heaven, than for some of us to give up our cell phone."
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Consequent to the smart phones serving the needs of amateur photographers and enthusiasts, the rise of smart phones is eating into the demand for the digital camera which witnessed a drop in sales by more than 35% per cent in the last one year.

Smartphone sales almost more than doubled from 44 million units in 2013 to 100 million units in 2016. The volume of smartphone sales is expected to touch 160 million units by 2017, reveals the ASSOCHAM latest study.

"The connectivity of the cloud and the prevalence of tablets and smartphones have eroded the traditional online/offline divide. Within a short time we will most probably stop thinking of it as 'online.' We will simply be connected, all the time, everywhere, and the online world will be notable only by its absence when that connection breaks."

Affordable smartphones includes handsets in the price of Rs 4000-10,000. This segment accounts for 78 per cent of all smartphone sales equipped with almost similar features which one may get in these sub-Rs 10,000 cameras, and thus need for digital cameras has almost vanished.

  • According to survey, most of the respondents said that the biggest advantage of clicking pictures with smartphones is that they can be shared instantly with your friends and family; a feature which is absent with most of the point and short cameras.
 

"The technology is changing at such a fast pace that the product developers have to think ahead of times; or else the top selling products of the present times can become outdated, without the manufacturers and those dominating the market today realising it, " ASSOCHAM Secretary Mr D S Rawat said.

He said, another feature of the smart devices market in India is that the country has a huge telephone subscribers' base of about a billion users who are becoming aspirational even at the bottom of pyramid.

About 93 per cent of the customers now prefer smartphones versus digital camera. The smart phones are becoming the main camera of choice by large number of people and increasingly more consumers are relying on their Smart Phones instead of compact Digital Cameras for both still photos and video capture

Almost 75 per cent of the sales of Mobiles and Tablets came from consumers' residing in Tier-I and Tier –II cities. As per study, personal Computer, MP3 players sales have already started declining, the impact of smartphone and tablet adoption so great that the number of users accessing the Internet through PCs starts falling.

The digital camera sale has suddenly come down due to large numbers of brands of smart phones at affordable price with multiple buying options. Soaring popularity of smartphones is crushing demand for digital compact cameras amongst the young. The compact camera market is going to keep shrinking in the coming years to come, adds the ASSOCHAM paper.

There has been a subsequent rise in the demand of smart phones in India in the last one year and one of the reasons behind this growing importance is largely due to the increase in social networking site. Most of the youth in the country share photographs online and upload photographs which has become a new trend in the metros thus giving rise to the need for smart phones, said Mr. Rawat.

Retailers to help consumers
leverage True 4G advantage

Thesynergyonline Communications Bureau


 

NEW DELHI, JANUARY 30 :
"Waves are the voices of tides. Tides are life," murmured Niko. "They bring new food for shore creatures, and take ships out to sea. They are the ocean's pulse, and our own heartbeat." -― Tamora Pierce, Sandry's Book

As the latest technology to engulf the Indian markets, 4G has already started making waves all over India Various cellphone services providers have launched 4G services in select states and regional markets, hoping to make the most of the first mover advantage. However, those who know the field well, know the difference between having a 4G connection and a 'True 4G' experience.

"It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button. "
― John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar

Thus, the All India Mobile Retailers Association (AIMRA) has initiated a drive to educate its members – the retailers – on what a 'True 4G' experience constitutes and which technology is necessary to have 'True 4G'. Retailers will be informed that ensuring your device has the VoLTE technology is the key to having the 'True 4G' experience.

As a part of the drive, the association plans to conduct events, seminars, and live demonstrations for the retailers. They will also come out with a wide range of communication to help illustrate the concept of True 4G. These will be displayed at prominent locations at retail counters so that the message can be passed on to the consumers as well.

'True 4G' symbol will be used to mark all such communication and would be used to familiarize the consumer at large about True 4G credentials assured through technologies such as VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, andeMBMS.

The awareness drive is considered necessary in view of the launch of VoLTE-enabled 4G phones in the smartphone market. These are different from the ordinary ones that only have basic technology to deliver hi-speed data on 4G-LTE (Long-term evolution) network, and were first to hit the market. When VoLTE-enabled smartphones are launched, consumers are going to ask which one should they buy. Once told about the benefits of True 4G, consumers will prefer to buy the True 4G phones and retailers could end up with inventory of normal 4G phones. For, generally speaking, the retailers act as a guide and enabler of choices for their consumer.

Speaking about AIMRA's role in the True 4G awareness campaign, Mr. Arvinder Khurana, National President, AIMRA said, "AIMRA is committed to bringing benefits of latest developments to all stakeholders in the mobile industry. We want to ensure that consumers are always aware about the latest technologies available in the market so that they always take an informed decision while purchasing devices. Through this campaign we believe retailers will be better informed about the key differentiators between VoLTE and non-VoLTE devices and will therefore be able to provide accurate guidance to consumers."

'True 4G' pertains not just to the 4G network but also to having the technologies such as VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, and eMBMS in your smartphone. These will allow users to make voice calls in HD quality, have 7-way audio conferencing, make videocalls and organize 4-way video conferencing, simultaneous talk and surf function, and make calls directly using the Wi-Fi connection. Leading device makers such as LG, Lenovo, Micromax, LYF and Intex have started introducing VoLTE/VoWi-Fi-enabled 4G devices in the market while others are expected to join the bandwagon soon.

Finally, technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that they are one and the same process as the universe. " - Alan W. Watts
