Teleworking / Telecommuting Survey
Many organizations have found Teleworking / Telecommuting to be a valuable productivity practice for their bottom line. Many employees have found Teleworking / Telecommuting to have tremendous benefits over working from a central office especially in todays' high cost of transportation. Productivity increases by no interruptions in workflow caused by inclimate weather or an employee having a simple illness such as a cold but still able to work, just not amongst an office full of people.
This survey is designed to gain and share perspectives on how Teleworking / Telecommuting has been implemented in organizations and how the program has served both the employee and the employer. This survey also serves to provide those who are considering Teleworking / Telecommuting programs within their organization a bit of insight on what to do and what not to do to ensure they have a successful rollout. Finally this survey will provide those who already have a Teleworking / Telecommuting program in place some ideas on how to make theirs an even better one.
Some positive findings from Teleworking initiatives:
- AT&T reported it saved more than $100 million in one year due to telework.
- Bradford Council benefits staff, who process all claims electronically achieved an 11-38% productivity improvement with an overall average gain of 25%, compared to non-teleworkers. Teleworkers had an 80% reduction in absenteeism rates, and reported increased job satisfaction and quality of life.
- Substantial transportation cost savings for employees from not having to travel to and from a central office.
- Employers are embracing telework to protect against discontinuity of operations. Similar to earthquakes in California, anthrax in Washington DC, 9/11, hurricanes, snow storms, floods and other natural disaster can prevent workers vital to business and government operations from physically traveling to central work locations. Telework provides public and private organizations with continuity of operations in circumstances where workers cannot physically travel to central work locations.
Thank you for participating in this informative survey.
