In our last blog, we listed a number of benefits of having out-of-office workers. Improving employee retention, increasing their productivity and lowering your office costs were the benefits listed. But, if we’re being honest, that list was only the tip of the iceberg! In today’s blog, we’d like to offer you three more reasons to let your employees work from remote locations.
If you’re looking to bolster your staff with talented new hires, you could do far worse than offer the ability to work from remote locations as a benefit of the job. This is especially true if you’re interested in adding millennials to your team. As Irma Hunkeler of RecruitLoop.com explains, younger generations are accustomed to being able to communicate cheaply and effectively from anywhere in the world.
“For younger employees, workplace flexibility is one of many factors they consider when looking for a new role,” she informs, “Numerous surveys have indicated that this it is something that they want and expect. Offering this type of benefit can help employers attract the young, highly skilled employees that might not otherwise be interested in a role.”
In many cases, remote workers work as private contractors. In other words, they invoice their employers for the work they complete instead of being paid traditional salaries. And, as Hunkeler points out, research has shown that 36 percent of employees would choose the ability to work from home over a pay rise.
“That means that rather than seeking a pay increase for their good performance, employees could be rewarded by having the flexibility to work from home,” she continues, “Not only will this help to keep your wage bill down but it will also improve the level of cash-flow in your business so you can take advantage of more of the opportunities that come along.”
“You can be connected to the office every minute of every day if you want to, thanks to the Internet,” informs Cynthia Johnson on Entrepreneur.com, “The concept of working from home might have seemed outlandish 20 years ago, but this is the 21st century.”
She’s absolutely right. At MeloTel, we’re proud to say that we have an amazing team of very talented employees. But they don’t all work in the same office each and every day. Thanks to our cloud-hosted Commercial Phone Services, we’re able to easily connect with each of our team members by simply dialing their extensions.
MeloTel customers can get in touch with the exact same ease! By calling us up at 1-888-MELOTEL, you can dial the extension of the team member you’re looking for and speak to him/her no matter where he/she is located. Our Commercial Phone Services enable your customers to have the same experience with your company!
In addition, the incredible Single Number Reach feature allows you to forward your cell phone number to up to five different devices of your choice. They will all ring at the same time when the number is dialed. This amazing service ensures that you never miss another important call no matter where in the world you are!
