Teleworking refers to the use of technology to allow people to work away from the office. An example of teleworking would be holding a meeting using video chat. As such, teleworking uses online
tools like email, instant messaging, VoIP and video conference.
Telework may benefit your organisation in the following ways:
Increased workforce participation. Sometimes people are unable to join their colleagues at a central office. Telework can allow them to participate in the workplace without the need
to physically commute to an office.
Time and cost savings for staff through a reduced need to travel for work.
Attracting the best employees regardless of their location.
Cost savings for employers through a reduced need for office space and electricity.
Reduced impact on the environment
– via less congestion on roads and public transport.
– via reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
