Pain at the Pump Paves the Way for DC Telework Opportunities
March 8, 2011 by Mike Certoma
The groan has been heard around the nation resulting from outrageous gas prices, making commuting to and from work a hardship for many DC Metro area employees. What can be done to lessen the financial burden without sacrificing productivity? The answer is DC Telework Solutions.
Studies have shown time and time again that with the right support and solutions, telework can be an extremely cost-effective way to keep businesses running smoothly while decreasing costs for both the employees and employers. Employees save when they can work from home or from a convenient on-demand DC office space; and employers save when they can decrease or even eliminate expensive traditional office space, as their employees work remotely.
It’s clearly a win-win situation for all people involved. In addition to cost-savings, employers who are using telework programs for employees have found that the employees are more loyal to the business, because they are satisfied with the flexibility telework offers. There is less need for sick days and personal days, because teleworkers can schedule their days in a way that is best for their appointments while keeping productivity high.
Rather than spending two or more hours on the road each day tackling the commute, employees who utilize DC telework services can get down to business right in their home office, or anywhere they have wireless access. Employees can access all of their vital work information through use of a VOIP platform. Having the ability to work anytime, anywhere significantly increases employee productivity and business productivity as a whole.
While working remotely is ideal for day-to-day work situations, most businesses also have a need to meet in a physical location, which is where Washington Virtual Offices and DC Executive Office Spaces provide much-needed solutions. Combined with Telework, these facilities offer the best of both worlds to business owners seeking innovative ways to increase employee productivity and continue conducting team and customer meetings as usual.
With the technology available in today’s business world, there is no reason for businesses to continue operating in the same old way- just because that’s the way it has always been done. New times call for new and better solutions. The top businesses today are zeroed in on finding ways to becoming more efficient while utilizing cost-effective methods.
So while the cost of gas is a frustration for all of us, the light at the end of the tunnel reveals itself in the form of DC Telework Solutions.
