Telecommuting & The New Way to do Business
80-90% of the American workforce would like to work from home. In fact, regular work-at-home (among the non-self-employed) has grown by 103% since 2005. Telecommuting has many benefits including boosted productivity, decreased absences, and increased retention. Businesses show an increased savings of approximately $11,000 per employee per year! Reducing employee commutes also helps reduce greenhouse gases, saves on wear & tear to the nation’s highways and also reduces the amount of traffic accident injuries. The benefit list can go on and on.
When considering telecommuting as an option for your employees, here are three important communication tools to ensure your telecommuting is a success:
- A high-speed internet connection and mobile infrastructure that’s built with security and stability.
- A phone system that allows for remote access to voicemail, call forwarding, and easy teleconferencing.
- An online collaboration tool for video conferencing, desktop sharing and conference calling.
