Telework and the HR Executive

5 STATS THAT DRIVE TELEWORK ADOPTION

 

SATISFACTION
Telework gives your employees a morale boost: 36% would choose it over a pay raise and would even take a pay cut if offered.

RECRUITMENT
When recruiting Millennials coming into the workforce, HR Executives found they rated Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs) as one of the top factors when deciding on a position.

ABSENTEES
When 78% of employees call in sick, they really aren’t. However companies that offer a telework program saw a drastic reduction in these situations of around 63%.

PRODUCTIVITY
Businesses lose tons over workplace distractions but more than 67% of employers report increased productivity among their telecommuters.

SAVES YOUR COMPANY MONEY
One of the many misconceptions about telework is that it will cost your company more than it’s worth, but 60% of Employers identify cost savings when they set up a formal telework. Most reported savings come from real estate costs, company taxes, and company sponsored transportation funds.
