A decade ago, telecommute was an almost unknown word and concept for most. Fast forward to 2020 where nowadays, in addition to already being implemented for some years, it is an important solution in the middle of an unprecedented pandemic! As we explained in the previous article, postponement is clearly a better solution than cancellation. For a large portion of businesses however, telecommute gives employees the option to avoid even postponement, since they continue to work normally from home, which is a very positive and encouraging fact! Of course, this may not always be the case in every situation, as the physical presence of some employees is considered necessary. But in today’s digital age, this is easier than ever… Let’s take a look at some of the great benefits of telecommute that we may not have thought of before!
Of course, telecommute isn’t always an available option, but in a world that is constantly changing and evolving, it is logical that new work models emerge at the same or even faster pace. So there is no doubt that we must take them seriously! What do you say? As employees, would you be interested in the idea of telecommute and as employers would you dare it?
