Teleworking is good for business, good for employees and good for society

More enterprises are integrating telework into their operations and talent development processes. Forget the stereotypical scene of a harried worker juggling television, phone calls, and the cat’s disruptive antics while they try to be “productive” from off-site: As companies embrace telework, they’re discovering the tremendous value it has to offer.

Hosted Voice is the Key to Achieving Effective Telework in Your Enterprise

Many small and mid-sized companies feel they aren’t positioned to achieve the savings and high efficiency of telework due to a lack of IT resources, especially cloud connectivity. It’s true that reliable connectivity is crucial when you want telework employees to be full engaged – even the smallest error could impair a team member’s contributions for a day or longer.

On the other hand, having an effective hosted voice system in place means telework will be fully integrated into everything your company does – so you can seamlessly harness maximum value from your off-site workers. After introducing telework into their mix, many companies have gone “full throttle” and reduced their office footprint to capture tremendous savings.

But the lingering question persists: Do workers really stay on task when they telework? Or is the savings a pie-in-the-sky mirage you’ll end up paying for in lost productivity? While this was once a mystery to be unraveled by a handful of pioneers, a clear picture is coming into focus – and it’s a positive one.

Studies have shown that when telework is part of the business plan, everyone reaps the benefits:

  • Brands reduce their operating expenses and cut down on disruption during weather events.
  • Workers enjoy better work-life balance while eliminating many common office distractions.
  • Managers achieve more flexibility when working with distributed teams or traveling.

The backbone of effective telework is a network with robust functionality that can respond to usage spikes and prevent downtime. With UCFlex, the hosted voice solution you need is here.
