Federal Survey Points to Benefits of Telecommuting

WASHINGTON, D.C.-In yet another study that validates the benefits of telecommuting, the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board has concluded that telecommuting can help organizations reach their mission. Virtual office solutions can play a key role.

The report, “Telework: Weighing the Information, Determining an Appropriate Approach,” relies on survey data from federal employees and supervisors, together with other information, to offer a holistic picture of the key benefits, concerns and implementation considerations for organizations to weigh as they figure out how to integrate telecommuting into the business strategy.

“Our study confirms that telework can result in many benefits for organizations and employees alike,” the authors report. “Further, and of critical importance, our findings indicate that the benefits of telework can occur while maintaining productivity and performance, if telework is managed appropriately.”

The report point focuses on the management aspect of virtual workers and recommends making sure supervisors have the skills necessary, as well as the support, to manage performance of telecommuters. What’s more, the report says leaders need to foster a culture conducive to telecommuting, which includes technology infrastructure and other business tools.
