Teleworking - The challenges and the future
Teleworking is nothing new and is even quite common in other countries, as it offers some advantages over traditional work. For example, it can eliminate the need of having a physical office, freeing up space and resources, and open up the range of options when hiring employees, as there is no longer a geographical limitation. For the employees, it saves them trips and meals away from home, and the increase in daily comfort results in greater motivation and productivity. There has to be, of course, a relationship based on trust and communication between the worker and the company, which can be maintained by the numerous technological tools available today.
