Teleworking is a growing feature of corporate life.
It may be a permanent arrangement when the staff member always works remotely or it may be more ad-hoc where they work from an office some of the time and remotely at others.
A 2017 Gallup survey of more than 15,000 working adults found that 43% worked remotely at least some of the time.
The concept is also described as remote working, ROHO working (remote office- home office) and SOHO working (small office – home office).
Sometime it will involve staff being based at ‘hubs’, ‘virtual’ or ‘serviced’ offices. Of course, the age-old road warrior also falls into this category be that a CxO or a sales rep – both spend significant time on the road working out of airport lounges, business centres and hotel rooms.
Typically the main drivers to ‘allow’ teleworking include:
- Attracting new staff
- Retention of existing staff
- Widening the pool of skilled employees
- Achieving gender-balance targets
- Lowering costs
- Improving productivity
- Improving employee satisfaction
