The Benefits of Telecommuting

Telecommuting or teleworking is a modern way of managing people. It is part of a new work culture in the global economy. For some, integrating telecommuting into their organizational culture is a challenge, as it involves an adaptation process. However, the integration of teleworking is a strategy adopted by thousands of companies around the world who want to increase their productivity, improve the motivation of their teams and achieve significant savings!

What is telecommuting?

Teleworking is a flexible form of work organization where a worker's professional activity can be carried out remotely. That is, the employee's physical presence at the office is not required during part or all of their work schedule. The worker can, therefore, choose his place of work, whether at home or elsewhere.

Careful: Telecommuting is a work agreement between a company  and an employee. It is not to be confused with freelancing!

Working remotely requires the frequent use of information and communication technologies in order to optimize productivity and strengthen the relationship between remote workers and their companies. Given the flexibility it allows and its many advantages (for both the worker and the employer!), telecommuting is used in many companies in different industries internationally.

How does telecommuting work?

To integrate teleworking within your company, you will need to set up a private cloud in order to store, protect and synchronize your data and have remote access to it in a secure manner. You will also need to choose the necessary technological tools and establish communication channels by email or video call to facilitate the organization of remote meetings.

What are the advantages of telecommuting?

Increase in productivity

Telecommuting works on the basis of objectives and deadlines rather than relying on specific hours worked. In this way, employees benefit from a flexible work schedule and can organize their workday to optimize their productivity.

This flexibility allows workers to better meet their personal needs, related to their physical and mental health, which increases their efficiency. In addition, teleworking allows workers to avoid distractions in the workplace and reduce their commuting time (no more traffic..), which saves them time!

Cost reduction

All businesses have one goal in common: to keep their costs at a minimum. Teleworking reduces operating costs, as well as costs related to office space, equipment, furniture, parking, utilities, coffee, and the list, goes on...

Lower staff turnover

The costs of integrating new workers are often very high. If you want to reduce turnover in your company, you can solve this problem by integrating telework into your company culture.

Offering the option of working remotely to your employees is a very attractive solution that positively affects their motivation and loyalty to the company. This is why companies that encourage a work-life balance have much lower staff turnover!

Decrease employee absenteeism

As mentioned above, teleworking works on a goal basis so workers can organize their schedules in order to achieve them. This means that if an employee wants to work more hours one day and have more free time the next day, he can do so. In this way, absenteeism is reduced and everyone is happy.

Attraction of new talents

Your company may not be able to hire some high-level, full-time professionals. However, many professionals are happy to work remotely based on objectives a few days a week or part-time. In addition, you can hire qualified personnel regardless of their place of residence. You can hire someone who doesn't even live in the same city where your business is located!

Better for the environment

Teleworking has a positive impact on the environment. In fact, thanks to telework, travel hours and, consequently, greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs are reduced.
