If this model is adopted, slashed commute time – to practically zero – increases one’s productivity. Giving us less stress from travelling and more time to think, telecommuters come up with creative ideas to better serve their clients. People work for more than 40 hours per week when at home, yet enjoy work-life balance. Moreover, telecommuting is a model which is also a huge money saver. Workers from home can save more money per year thanks to reduced expenses on public transport costs, fuel, and even dry cleaning.
Work-from-home organizations can do away with renting conventional office spaces and opt for co-working spaces to accommodate their remote workforce. The costs of overheads, admin staff, and other office supplies are also negligent. Some employers even operate from home offices to save that extra penny.
The work-from-home trend is in full swing today, and if it continues (without online scams), the welfare of our country, the world, and the environment at large is certain. Current organizations need to make amendments to create standard Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for employees while monitoring performance and time through software applications. Startups are the torchbearers of this working model and others will soon follow suit.
