Adoption of Teleworking within the business community involves a paradigm shift that working from home is still working and ultimately more effective.

At Mitel, we not only provide the Teleworker technology in ninety countries to thousands of businesses, we use our Teleworker Solution each day to be a resource for our business clients, our employee morale and our environment. A high percentage of our 3,000 plus employees spread across the world work both from home and the office and many of those work solely as homebased teleworkers . Mitel’s hotdesking feature allows to seamlessly “plug and work” from any location via a secure AES128 Bit encryption. Whether it’s at one’s assigned office, an open desk at an out of town office, or our home office, the ability to conduct business communications is unhampered.

Recent research sponsored from Mitel indicates two thirds (68%) of employees believe that by working from home they would actually take a more flexible approach to work, enabling them to be more productive (41%), and end up working longer hours (28%).
Eliminating commuting time to and from the office would be the trade-up for this increased productivity and longer working hours without impacting quality of life for employees. The research reveals that when it comes to attitudes towards teleworking, nearly one in five (18%) employees would like the opportunity to work from home two days a week, and that over half (55%) believe it is an acceptable option for any level.

Psychologist and employee productivity expert, Dr David Lewis, said: “Managers must understand that every individual has a different style of working, so by allowing your staff to work how they feel best able to achieve results can only benefit their well being and most importantly increase their productivity and ultimately customer service. It comes down to a matter of trust. If you trust and respect your employees to get the job done, they will trust and respect you in return and do the best they possibly can, regardless of whether they are in the office or not.”

Reducing overheads, improving customer satisfaction, increasing productivity and staff retention are the core business benefits that stem from teleworking. However, organizations are recognizing that their environmental responsibilities can also be addressed by implementing teleworking which helps decrease the congestion problems in urban areas and cut carbon emissions.
