The Helpful Impact of Telework
Over the past 30 years, at the same time the percentage of commuters driving has flatlined, the share of people working from home has exploded, almost doubling since 1980. Telecommuting is controversial — some suggest it increases productivity while others maintain the value of offices — but it is gaining popularity no matter its merits.
Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight…
These charts point out some important trends about telework, but they all point out the fact that telework is definitely on the rise. As more organizations turn to telework, the advantages are becoming clearer. It saves money for employers, employees have more time to balance work and life, traffic becomes less of an issue, and the decreased number of commuters is healthy for the environment. It’s a win-win.
With more and more people working from home and companies using telework to lower their costs and improve productivity, it is becoming almost a necessity for many large companies. To stay competitive and to draw new talent, organizations must begin to embrace the growing trend toward telework. With the right training and preparation, a telework initiative can set your organization on the path to a successful future.
