Telecommuting Policy Tips
By Claudia St. John
Mobile technology, cloud-based work applications, internet phone and video conference services � all of these technologies have made business operations more efficient and cost effective. They have also given rise to a growing workplace trend: telecommuting.
By one estimate, 24 percent of workers telecommute at least some hours each week and, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 9.6 percent of employees now work at least one day a week from home. The benefits of this highly popular work arrangement are clear � employees gain more control of their work/life balance and save on commuting costs while employers enjoy the benefits of increased employee productivity, morale and motivation.
But telecommuting can have its pitfalls. If you have or are considering rolling out a telecommuting program, it is important to put some things in place before your employee packs up her desk and heads to her home office.
