As governments pass stringent social distancing restrictions and current situation forces employees to work from home in order to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, business as usual is no longer usual.
Organizations suddenly need to support a fully remote workforce. They need to keep offering their services and support to their clientele while ensuring that their employees are protected from the imminent health threat. To do so, new practices need to be applied, to be in line with the newly created working environment/circumstances.
In this new reality, the solution for the companies and their financial survival is telecommuting.
What are the pros of telecommuting?
Besides public health protection from COVID-19, telecommuting brings many benefits to employers and employees.
On one hand, the organisation seamlessly continues its operations and offers continuous support to its clients, decreasing operational costs, while increasing employee productivity.
On the other hand, employees enjoy many benefits such as: protection of their health and safety, preservation of their salary, elimination of commuting time, maintenance of a healthy life-work balance, increase of job satisfaction.
What are the prerequisites of telecommuting?
Organizations must ensure remote employees have the tools and applications they need, in order to successfully fulfill remote work.
As far as the employees are concerned, they will need access to these tools, a computer or laptop and an internet connection.
