Telecommuter Appreciation Week
Many people who work for companies must commute to work. They are often tired of driving long distances, getting stuck in traffic, and feeling stressed. Have you ever thought about commuting to work for your boss. Telecommuter appreciation day is about learning more about telecommuters, appreciating their work and looking at how you can improve your work life.
Telecommuter Appreciation Week aims to educate people about the benefits of telecommuting, and how it can benefit employees and employers. The American Telecommuting Association founded it. This organization aims to educate people on telecommuting and to show them how to get their bosses to embrace this option.
Since 1996, the ATA has been sending out newsletters. This gives people an opportunity to learn more about telecommuting and the value that telecommuters bring to their businesses.
Forbes and the ATA both report that telecommuting can make employees and employers happier. Small and large employers report that telecommuting has a positive impact on productivity. It removes distractions, allows for faster recovery, and offers a better balance between home and work.
Telecommuting can have many health benefits. It reduces carbon footprints and stress levels, improves morale, and allows older generations to work more easily. It reduces costs, allows for more productivity, and offers the possibility of easier overtime.
Ask your employer about telecommuting options and the policies regarding telecommuting if you are interested. Find out if they have the technology necessary to make this happen. You can find out if this is right for you and, if so, you can go for it. Ask others who telecommute to share their experiences.
