Telecommuting Saves Big Companies Money

in Working

Telecommuting, or allowing others to work from remote locations, is a great way for your company to save money. It's a fact that telecommuting is a great way to have employees do work, especially considering the fact everyone is more comfortable at home. Needless to say, you won't need that large building with all of those offices since your employees don't need to travel.

Also, at least 44 million Americans participate in telecommuting. But why do companies not fully accept telecommuting as a solution to making a larger overall salary? Put simply, they don't believe it will. Maybe you believe the same, but this article will make you think differently.

The workplace is stressful, that's for sure. As frantic as a class 4 hurricane and as heated as a kiln, the work environment isn't as efficient as one would think. The comfort of one's home is really the best place to get work done, especially since there's little to no stress.

Even more remarkably, there are fewer distractions than in a traditional office environment since you don't have tedium or other coworkers to distract you. Working from home just improves your morale in general; it allows you to think more clearly and you have your family available to you. Also you're in an extremely comfortable place that allows you to "feel at home".

Not to mention the savings on gas prices. With a failing economy, gas is becoming almost unaffordable. Not having to drive to work every day will motivate people to join your company and increase your work efficiency. Telecommuters won't be stressed about commuting costs so they will get more work done. Time is money and if people work more efficiently, then the company makes more money.

Also, you don't have to worry about a large company building since you don't need all of that office space. With all of those employees working from home you barely even need a building. Big companies can save heating and air conditioning costs by having fewer people working in a smaller office.

In fact, a large company called Sun Microsystems saved $68 Million in real estate costs alone when they issued a new "Open Work" policy. The "Open Work" policy meant that employees could choose to either work from home or at work. Care to guess what most of them chose?

Telecommuting is the way to go for big companies but the higher ups generally have a hard time accepting the trend. However, don't let old fashioned business ideas scare you away from asking your boss to consider the idea of telecommuting. With today's increased technology, it's so easy to keep in touch with employees or other team members so there really shouldn't be any concerns.

If your company hires telecommuters, start publicizing that fact so you can recruit more skilled people. Working from home is a dream to many people and if you start telecommuting, recruitment would be a lot more competitive and there will be a lot more public interest in your company. Make your life easier by making their lives easier!
