It is obvious that commuters are becoming more stressed and exhausted by the daily ritual of travelling to work and many are looking for solutions that will lead to a better working life. Traffic, dangerous driving, pollution, road rage, overcrowded trains and late buses are leaving employees tired and unmotivated and by the time they arrive at work, they are often not as productive as they should be.
The average Australian spends approx 30 minutes travelling to work each day. That’s on average an hour a day spent in a car, train, bus or combination of these and this in itself is unproductive. Many would like the opportunity of more flexibility in working practices, and this includes working from home. Certainly, for non-client facing activities, this approach has benefits. Not only do employees benefit from not having to travel to work, but also they save time, are less stressed, and produce better quality work.
Of course, many small businesses can and do discuss the best option for them to allow employees to work from home, for at least part of the week. Certainly, advances in technology allow such an approach to be more feasible but ensuring that members of staff who work from home have this essential technology in place can prove to be an expensive headache for the small to medium sized business owner. One perfect solution is to take advantage of office equipment rental packages that will help lower overall business costs and increase staff morale and productivity at the same time.
Certainly, at the same time, businesses should be aware of security issues, particularly with the amount of data available on company systems nowadays, but with the right technology and software, this can easily be addressed by allowing only the minimal amount of access necessary to perform the work from home. And is often the case, the privileges of working from home often come once a staff member has proven themselves to be hard working, self motivated and trustworthy.
So, workers want to cut out the grind of commuting, and businesses want their staff to be more productive, and IT advances will allow this to happen. Letting employees to do more from home could be good for a business and its employees. Perhaps the only issue is trust. But why would a business employ staff it didn’t trust?
