Globalization is here, and it’s here to stay. This makes it crucial now more than ever for your company to adopt business strategies that could give you a competitive edge in the global market.
Many enterprises are now making technological shifts to help them work faster and smarter. Thus, we see the rise of automation, web- and mobile-based apps, and other modern tools in various business models today.
On the human resources side of things, companies and their recruitment agency are trying to attract high-quality talent by offering them the option to telecommute. Businesses are recognizing the many benefits of a remote work setup for their employees.

For one, telecommuting allows employees to focus their energy on the work itself in an environment, where they’re solely responsible for their own work space and output. For many employees, this type of work design simplifies their “office life,” helping them perform more effectively.
At the same time, telecommuting is a way for your company to save a big chunk of their operational budget. Telecommuting can help your business organization reduce overhead costs, which are quite high in a regular office setup. Your company can then put those savings in different areas or projects to help you focus on other core aspects of the business.
However, telecommuting is still in its infancy. Adoption rates are not in full blast as many companies still try to understand what telecommuting is all about.
Employees and employers who are already working remotely may be facing certain issues that they need to address first so that everyone could reap the full benefits of telecommuting.
Our infographic can give you or your recruitment agency a more realistic view of telecommuting by discussing the pros and cons behind it. It’s also our hope that you’ll be able to assess whether telecommuting opportunities can help your business compete in the global age.
