Arizona Commercial Real Estate for Lease

Is Telecommuting the Future of Business?

telecommuter office, commercial lease arizona

For folks who spend hours commuting to and from work every day to their commercial lease Arizona office, the opportunity to work from home might sound like a dream come true. And some of the country’s top companies are starting to offer more and more telecommuting jobs (Dell, American Express, Aetna, etc.) – others (Yahoo!, for example) are leaning away from the practice. Is telecommuting the future of business, or is there still hope for the traditional office environment?

Flexibility is the root appeal of telecommuting. Technological advances have made it easy for employees to communicate with their teammates remotely from anywhere in the world, so if your commercial office building in Phoenix finds an ideal job candidate from Puerto Rico, telecommuting provides you the flexibility to hire that employee. With telecommuting, proximity might no longer be a road block in the hiring process. On the other side of the coin, employees now have the flexibility to balance their personal and professional schedules with more freedom. This is especially appealing to families with two working parents.

Could your commercial lease Arizona company benefit from allowing employees to work from home? We have weighed the advantages and disadvantages of telecommuting:

The Advantages of Telecommuting

For the Employer:
1. Reduction in travel costs for employees commuting to and from the office and job sites.
2. Savings on office supplies and equipment (employees use their own supplies at home, or use cloud-based document sharing).
3. Savings on office space and parking.
4. Work-life balance allows companies to retain talented employees who may have inflexible schedules.
5. There is no relocation cost for settling new employees.

For the Employee:
1. Employees save time, money and stress that is exerted with commuting to and from the office.
2. There are more career opportunities because they are not tied to one location.
4. They have complete flexibility to balance a busy schedule.
5. There is increased productivity due to less distractions and time wasted on commuting.

The Disadvantages of Telecommuting

For the Employer:
1. There is a lack of employee supervision.
2. There may be security concerns for companies with sensitive information being transferred to home computers.
3. There could be a decline in office moral if some employees are allowed to telecommute, while others are not.
4. In-office brainstorming would suffer.

For the Employee:
1. An employee might lose sight of boundaries between work and home.
2. There is a potential for isolation in employees that need to feel connected with coworkers.
3. There is a potential loss of direction between employer and employee.
4. An employee may lose the discipline to drive to work when needed.

The pros and cons of telecommuting are situational for every company. Companies should evaluate the effects telecommuting would have on their success and future growth. With extensive planning and established rules, telecommuting could prove innovative and essential in the future of your business.
