Telecommuting Trends

Telecommuting is increasingly growing more popular among the workforce. Employees are routinely working from home offices, client sites or other remote locations. Even though separated from supervisors and other colleagues, these telecommuters understand that they still need to remain connected with their peers so they can collaborate with one another and their clients.

Popular social media sites, such as Facebook and LinkedIn® encourage collaboration, motivating individuals to share information and work together on various projects. Businesses around the world are realizing that they can use several collaboration tools that can better improve business relationships, increase productivity and save money.According to Frost & Sullivan, there are five key business and technology trends that feed into this growing movement:

  1. Crowdsourcing
  2. Consumerization of IT
  3. Mobility
  4. Social Media
  5. Globalization
