The advantages of telecommuting
Some companies have already opted for telecommuting as an intermittent arrangement or have implemented it on a recurring basis, allowing employees to work from home. Thanks to the widespread use of information and communication technology (ICT) within the company, telecommuters have the tools necessary to perform their tasks in appropriate conditions while maintaining contact with employees that are physically present on the premises. The conditions covering switching to telecommuting and the terms of implementation for the contract must be defined by the employer and their employee in advance.
This agreement between the employer and the employee also depends on the type of position occupied by the employee, as in some cases telecommuting is evidently more difficult to implement, or it may even be impossible. For some positions, however, work from home is a very good solution.
Faced with unforeseen circumstances such as transport strikes or the risk of an epidemic, the use of telecommuting is a good example to follow in order to mitigate any problems that may be encountered or suffered by employers and employees. Setting up telecommuting conditions therefore allows you to remain responsive and maintain control of the situation, while, above all, limiting detrimental effects to the activity of your company.
With some adjustments, and by reorganising their usual work routine, the telecommuter can continue to perform the tasks entrusted to them and the employer can ensure the proper running of the company.The use of collaborative tools that are accessible by all users online is crucial for people to be able to share information in real time. For example, when it comes to business planning management, being able to organise and monitor a remote work schedule becomes a major benefit.
