4 Keys to Telecommuting Success
your company is getting aboard the telecommuting trend,
consider the following four keys to success:
Set a trial period. Begin
with a 2 to 6 month period during which the employee and his
or her manager can get a feel for just how (and whether) this
arrangement will work. If either side is unhappy at the end of
the trial period, make adjustments or scrap the idea entirely.
Manage for results.
Generally, telecommuters should be managed based on results -
not on close scrutiny of everyday work methods. That said,
instruct managers to schedule regular telephone calls and
request status reports (as necessary) to stay in the loop.
Don't forget about them.
Just because they work remotely doesn't mean they're no longer
part of the team. Include telecommuters in companywide e-mail
announcements and invite them to meetings or events held at
the office - even if you think they won't be able to attend.
Provide quality technology.
Telecommuters should have a reliable computer, Internet
connection, telephone (with voice mail), and all the necessary
software and network connections. This may seem obvious, but
many people launch into telecommuting without considering the
nuts and bolts of doing so.
Telecommuting arrangements can also save your company money,
such as on office space. Contact us for help crunching the
