Our previous post in the Benefits of Telecommuting series looked at increased employee retention. Today we’ll discuss how a VoIP application like gloCOM causes productivity & teamwork to increase as well.
The biggest factor in guaranteeing productivity and collaboration among remote workers is presence. Using the presence feature on gloCOM, supervisors and coworkers are able to monitor who is online and available in real-time.
Supervisors can use this feature to ensure employees are online and active during working hours. Teams can use it to quickly monitor the availability of other team members and initiate spur-of-the-moment meetings.
Another feature essential to effective telecommuting is reliable communication in real-time. gloCOM provides several methods of communicating that always work with just the click of a button. From instant messaging to voice calls to screen share, telecommuters are available all the time in real-time.
Finally, telecommuting eliminates commutes and distractions that may decrease productivity in an office setting. With no idle chat around the water cool or slipping out of the office early to beat rush hour, employees will be productive for more hours in the day.
