Mother at work?

The article presents information on the Web-based magazine 'Mother at Work.' A research undertaken by the Institute of Employment Studies deals with home based teleworking and the impact on working mothers in Great Britain. The working mother is a well known and usually invaluable employee. They have usually returned to work after getting through the first very dependent months or years of their off-spring's lives and bring with them a wealth of former experience, perhaps with the same organization, now blended with a mature outlook on life. But these valuable women often find it tough combining motherhood with their career. If things get on top of them their work suffers as do their immediate colleagues and, eventually, their families. The first issue of the web-based magazine contains articles on family, financial and work topics that will shed light on the problems of working mothers. Access to the webzine is free and readers are welcome to download whatever they wish to read later at leisure.
