Telework in the real world
Monday - 5/17/2010, 10:57am EDT
Jon Desenberg, policy director for the Performance Management and Human Capital Management Divisions at The Performance Institute, also explains the benefits for the day-in, day-out teleworker.
Gallup has done a lot of studies on what keeps employees engaged and motivated, and a lot of what they have found is it's the goal setting, it's the informal feedback almost on a daily basis between employees and their supervisors that creates an engaged workforce.
And that engagement is just as strong at home and sometimes even stronger because, A-number-one, people aren't stuck in the traffic that is really, literally harming people's health. Let's not under-estimate: sitting in traffic is stressful and can be the worst part of people's day and by the time they get to work, they're already exhausted! So that's number one.
Number two, what we found is people continue to work... in the evenings, on weekends and it becomes a much more fluid environment.
