home working

Home working (Flexible/remote working)
The 2002 Employment Act made it possible for any member of staff with children under the age of six to request flexible working so they can look after their family and continue employment at the same time. The options for employers range from ensuring that people can work different hours at the office through to working on a computer at home. For companies unable to accommodate the needs of staff who then decide to move on, it can be an expensive business. The CIPD Labour Turnover Survey of 2002 found that it costs an average of £3,460 to replace an employee and £5,700 to find a manager.
Home working can save money. Companies are now making use of “hot desks” at their offices, shared between staff who may work in an office only one or two days a week. That can save a lot of space but it does mean you need a network that can cope with different people at each location every day.
For staff who want to work from home, making sure they can work as effectively there as when they are in the office demands good communications. Broadband and virtual private networks make it possible for the home PC to work in the same way as it would in an office, without sacrificing security. And the use of voice-over IP, a fast-emerging technology, means staff can even make calls to the office and to customers using the corporate network, so you do not have to worry about each worker’s home phone bill.
