How much can a company save by making most of their workers telecommute?



  1. 0 Votes

    Americans spent more than 100 hours a year commuting to work, about 2005. So individuals would benefit by avoiding those costs and hours.

    But even people who are telecommuting sometimes have the same office space and equipment, so a company may not save any money at all.

    Further, only some jobs are suitable for telecommuting. Employes who are on-site are more productive in some ways, and in some situations may be essential.

    Socializing is an important part of work for many people, and events such as meetings and lunches can help people work together. Overall, for many jobs, a company doesn’t save money by telecommuting at all — unless telecommuting means moving labor overseas where it’s cheaper.
