Everyone in your company, including you, loves the location. Your lease is long term at a reasonable rate. Your business is thriving, and several blocks around you are booming with new buildings.
You look into leasing more space to expand and discover the square footage rates increased dramatically. Your employees are fighting over meeting rooms now. What can you do?
Give your employees and your business expansion some breathing room with telecommuting. Isn’t it expensive? No, according to a Global Workplace Analytics report, you can save as much as $10k per employee.
Small businesses all over the world are taking advantage of the benefits of telecommuting and thriving. Telecommuting means a large pool of well-qualified people for the job as there are no limits by location, city, or even country. Your small business can access people with superb qualifications who want a flexible working environment not offered by a large corporation.
Also, several surveys report that your employees will be more productive. They will take fewer sick days and enjoy their job more. This leads to less turnover, which lowers your costs even more.
Telecommuting allows a small business office space flexibility, access to more well-qualified hires, and saves employee costs. If set up correctly for your business and your employees, it allows your business to grow and keep costs down.
