Plenty of organizations today don’t view telework as a wish-list item, but as a necessity for their business. It was common for IT leaders to be hesitant about virtual workers five years ago, but now, some say telework is essential to cut costs and improve efficiency.

Here are some examples of the main benefits of telework:

  • Flexibility and cost savings
  • Expanded talent pool
  • Increased productivity
  • Employee retention

Some IT leaders insist telework is becoming a prerequisite for hiring and retaining the best employees. And, in today’s business world, those organizations with the best and brightest people are going to succeed. Not to mention, the technology to enable telework is readily available.

So, how does this apply to your organization? Do your organizations’ employees telework today (Ripe), or is your organization hesitant about supporting virtual workers (Hype)?
