State aiming to make remote work a reality

Minister Hildegarde Naughton

Galway is expected to benefit from ‘significant investment’ in the development of remote working hubs later this year – as part of the Government’s new National Remote Working Strategy.

Legislation will be introduced by the end of September entitling employees to request remote working arrangements. And while there will be no automatic entitlement, employers will be required to explain why such arrangements are impossible.

If an employee is unhappy with the explanation, they can take a case to the Workplace Relations Commission for adjudication on the matter.

A total of €5 million has been allocated under Budget 2021 for the development of a national hubs network, while the Western Development Commission (WDC) is currently working on the development of 100 hubs in the Atlantic Economic Corridor region, which includes Galway.

Minister Hildegarde Naughton said that the strategy had the potential to transform local economies and the quality of life of thousands of employees in the west.

“The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated exponentially the move towards remote working, and we have responded to that trend by investing in broadband infrastructure and hubs in recent months,” explained the Galway West TD.

Three of Galway’s shining success stories reveal plans to expand in 2021

Senator Aisling Dolan....good news.

Three of Galway’s start-up success stories have all gone into the New Year with expansion plans – creating around ten high-end jobs each in the process.

The continued expansion of these Enterprise Ireland-supported companies – based in the med-tech and new technology sectors – are a ringing endorsement of enterprise in the west, according to Galway Senator Aisling Dolan.

Palliare, a medical device company founded in 2018 as a spinout from Irish gastro-diagnostic company Crospon, has hired ten new employees in recent months.

Flexwork company, Ronspot intends to have a total of ten new employees on board by spring 2021, and has hired five people since September.

Ronspot – based in the GMIT Innovation Hub – is a technology company which enables the flexible workplace between office and home.

And Venari Medical – a spin-out from the BioInnovate Ireland fellowship programme for medical device innovation at NUIG – filled three new positions in October, with plans to recruit up to ten new employees in the coming months.

Senator Dolan described the jobs as a vote of confidence in graduates in the west.

“It shows that the dynamic MedTech research in the west has a strong ecosystem with third level underpinned by Enterprise Ireland and the seed capital investment support from the Western Development Commission,” she said.

“It is wonderful to see Irish innovation rising to the top, competing internationally and winning global export markets. Enterprise Ireland champions Irish based innovative companies and crucially supports early-stage development,” she added.
