Telework

What commute could be better than a short walk from your bed to your home office? A business trend that many employers are embracing is teleworking, also known as telecommuting. Telework is an innovative business solution that gives employers and employees flexibility by allowing employees to work outside of the office on a full-time, part-time, or even temporary basis. Modern technology conveniently connects teleworking employees to management, coworkers, and clients, making it virtually unnoticeable that the seat in their central office is empty.

 

Employees who telework appreciate the opportunity to:

  • Save time
  • Reduce costs associated with commuting, dry cleaning, and eating out
  • Decrease stress
  • Increase productivity
  • Have fewer interruptions
  • Reduce pollution
  • Improve work/life balance
  • Be happier, often the result of feeling more in control of their time and lives

Companies that offer telework appreciate the opportunity to:

  • Improve employee retention
  • Increase access to talented individuals living further from worksite
  • Reduce absenteeism and tardiness
  • Decrease overhead expenses
  • Improve employee morale
  • Portray positive community image
  • Increase productivity
  • Implement procedures that benefit business continuity

$50,000 Tax Credit Program!

Seeing telework as a way to reduce pollution and traffic and to lower costs for its residents, Virginia is offering companies a tax credit worth up to $1,200 per teleworker to cover the cost of the home office equipment. The Telework!VA program offers the credit to businesses if they begin telework programs for their employees in 2012 and 2013.

This tax incentive is the boost companies need to get over their cost-fears and move towards implementation.  In the end, allowing for telework could save the company millions of dollars overall as the need for space can be great reduced and real estate can be cut.
