In recent weeks we have been in discussion with a number of prospective customers and the term ‘Teleworking’ has arisen on a number of occasions. Our belief that the benefits of teleworking are many and varied have been born out by a recent US study. The study shows that amongst other benefits, teleworking can significantly improve both employee conditions and productivity along with the employer being able to retain valued members of staff.
Employees that have been brought through your corporate culture and have a beneficial corporate ‘fit’ are not necessarily lost due to a location change. Although we are in tough employment times, the ideal candidate can still be difficult to find and an option of an element of teleworking can be seen as a considerable reason for taking a position with a forward thinking employer.
We at INSITU Garden Office believe this is a great time to offer existing and new employees alike the option of teleworking, and what could be better than to do it from a warm and relaxing environment like an INSITU garden office!
