According to the latest survey, as many as 18% of employees worldwide practice some form of telework. In addition, a whopping 68% work from home once a month. This trend continues to grow.
Telecommuting benefits both employers and employees. Expert studies have proven that telecommuting increases worker efficiency by 4.4%. Furthermore, the increase in productivity is accompanied by an increase in the quality of work.slečna s notebookem na koleni.jpg
Of course, telecommuting is not for everyone and applies only to certain industries. You would most likely not assemble heavy equipment while at home. Or you would not be selling over the counter. But for clerical activities, the need to sit in an office is slowly becoming an unnecessary relic.
Thanks to modern technology, many people can work virtually anywhere. Most cafes have Internet access. It is almost commonplace to have an Internet connection at home. We can have live videoconferences with our colleagues on our smartphones. You can connect with anyone from anywhere. You can save time and money spent on commuting. Or save time going to business meetings. So telecommuting is slowly becoming the norm, figuratively speaking, to be able to work from anywhere.notebook a kafe se srdíčkem.jpg
Advantages of telecommuting
For employers, the savings on office rent is a major benefit. Furthermore, as already mentioned, it increases employee efficiency.
For employees, the benefits of telecommuting are even broader. If the nature of the job allows, employees can set flexible work hours. For parents in particular, this makes it easier to balance work and child rearing.

Things to be aware of
Telecommuting also has its pitfalls. Be careful not to sleep in the office afterwards. Or do not work in your bedroom. Either is fine. Separate your work time from your personal time. It takes practice and firmness. But with a little effort, you can certainly separate your work and personal time.
