Firstly what is telecommuting?
What Is Telecommuting And How Is It Going To Help My Business?
Telecommuting (also known as working from home, or e-commuting) is a work arrangement in which the employee works outside the office, often working from home or a location close to home
Why would a business want Telecommuting?
Some businesses are being forced to because they’ve run out of office space or to accommodate “road warriors.” But many are doing it for these reasons… Business owners (and key managers) working 60+ hours a week are using it as a way to continue working after hours and on weekends from the convenience of their home office. Allowing employees to work from home means businesses can cut back on office space, lowering rent and utility bills – and according to a recent survey of small businesses, nearly 40% of small and medium business es have (or plan to) cut down office space and allow employee to work remotely from home to save money.
Some companies are allowing their employees to work from home two or three days out of a week instead of giving them a raise –a bonus many will gladly take over more money. This also works well if you have limited office space because employees can rotate desk usage.
It allows you to keep great employees that need or want to relocate, need to stay home to take care of a sick family member, or who are sick, injured, pregnant, or otherwise unable to physically come into the office
