GovLoop, in partnership with HP, recently launched a telework calculator. The calculator will help you state your case to your supervisor, and show the potential cost savings by teleworking.
Be sure to visit the calculator to run your own calculations. The calculator will show you the annual total cost savings, hours of productivity saved, productivity gained from time savings, annual vehicle savings and annual pollutant reduction levels.
In a recent GovLoop blog, Is Telework a Critical Benefit?, Lindy Kyzer stated, “A decade ago, the idea of telework wasn’t even a consideration for many people, especially workers in the federal government. Presence was seen as a key aspect of employment and productivity, for supervisors as well as employees themselves.”
Today, the idea of telework and a more flexible schedule has become common across all sectors and by numerous employers. Although telework is now easily attainable due to advancements in technology, there are still certain challenges. Trust continues to be a challenge for teleworkers, but through proper communication, the use of video, and periodic check-ins, teleworkers can overcome the challenge of trust.
Be sure to take a look at the telework calculator, and run through the calculations. By showing the cost savings, employees can work to develop a better case to telework.
