As COVID-19 causes our workforce climate to shift from traditional brick and mortar offices and daily commutes, to virtual and telework options, working from home has quickly become the new standard.
Many organizations and professionals find the transition to this new norm challenging, primarily because of how quickly these shifts became necessary in response to the current health crisis.
BMC has gathered resources designed to help offices quickly develop and implement an effective telework program. These tools are available immediately for usage related to the current pandemic. They may also aid businesses in taking advantage of the long-term benefits associated with offering more permanent telework options.
Considering ongoing teleworking options beyond the pandemic offers benefits to both employers and employees. After implementing a telework program, organizations often report improved employee retention, reduced recruiting and training costs, improved productivity, reduced need for office space and reduced overhead as results. In addition, the reduction of cars on the road due to a decrease in daily commutes improves air quality for our region and beyond. There is value in considering long-term telework program offerings as temporary emergency options are established.
