The TRUTH About Telecommuting [INFOGRAPHIC]

Given the nature of the work involved for elearning development, it isn’t always necessary to be in the office 100% of the time, which is great for both the instructional designer and the client.  However, despite all of the advantages, some organizations are still hesitant to pull the trigger on a telecommute schedule because of some misconceptions.  The infographic below provides some good hard facts in regards to the bottom line benefits of telecommuting – perhaps this can be of use when making a pitch for an off-site work arrangement?

  1. Justin, I like this with one exception. Although I have in the past, and prefer to, work from home on certain assignments… what about the percentage of workers who appear busy, industrious, and always at their desk… but don’t actually contribute anything? If they chose to telecommute, the management might realized just how little their contribution is. Shouldn’t this percentage be deducted from the savings?

  2. Cute well designed infographic!

    <3 working from home is certainly productive, but it can get stressful!

    Like when I have to race downstairs every day at exactly 4:45pm to put real pants on, brush my hair, & apply make up before my husband comes home from work. I pretend every day that I've been like that all day and he pretends too. lol
