How An Employee Can Benefit By Telecommuting

Aug 17, 2007
As an employee you know how much time is wasted each day. The wastefulness begins before you even set foot inside your office! You are stuck in traffic for hours on end, and instead of being on the telephone talking with customers and clients you are forced to inch at a snail's pace closer to the exit that will take you to yet another clogged highway.

It is therefore no surprise that so many employees clamor to get a chance at telecommuting. If you have what it takes to work diligently and without direct supervision of others, then this mode of work will most likely yield great benefits for your. Some of these benefits are of course quite obvious: the ability to spend time with your family is perhaps the one advantage most often mentioned by those who telecommute.

Yet the very fact that you will be able to take a greater sense of ownership from the job will spur you on to give it your all. You will most likely work even more closely with customers and clients to cultivate the important relationships that ensure future growth for the company and that will also help you to personally reap grater profits by establishing that one on one relationship so many consumers crave. Add to this the heightened productivity you will experience as a result of no longer being subject of the traffic congestion that is so frequently found everywhere, and you can see how your personal sales will begin to take off!

Some wagging tongues will attempt to belittle your efforts, and quite possibly even make you feel guilty for taking a coffee break, taking Rover for a quick walk, or simply for doing a load of laundry in between assignments. While in excess your critics would be right, in moderation these activities actually benefit the employer. Short breaks and a change of scenery are akin to the trip to the kitchen at work to refill your coffee. You get away from everything for a bit, exercise, and then return quite often with a fresh perspective and ready to give it even more of an effort.

Interestingly, one of the greatest benefits to telecommuting for the employee is rarely mentioned: the fact that disturbances by other employees are all but eliminated. You know how frustrating it can be when suddenly someone enters your office to chat, or to ask for your help with a task, or simply because they want to discuss an aspect of a project with you. While necessary activities, they can be greatly curtailed by telecommuting, thus allowing you to complete your assignments faster and with much greater efficiency. This in turn might allow you a bit of leisure time toward the end of the day that you would not have been able to realize otherwise.
