A recent WorldatWork study showed a 63% increase from 2004 to 2006 in the number of employers who allowed employees to work remotely at least once per month. However, the success of telework depends heavily on applying it to the right employees and supervisors as well as setting up the proper infrastructure. Many organizations simply implement a telework program without a well-examined strategy, which results in failing programs, resentful managers and frustrated employees.
Teleworking is critical to attracting and retaining top talent. Although several books have been published on the subject in recent years, Telework: A Critical Component of Your Total Rewards Strategy, published by WorldatWork Press, contains the latest information for telework programs. This informational book helps organizations successfully implement or expand telework options to support additional important operational goals of the organization.
Using practical steps and sample templates, the book also explains the human resource, management, legal and technology components of operating a telework plan, and includes a brief discussion of how telework fits into a business continuity plan.
For the manager of an existing unsuccessful telework program, this book is an important standard to measure against and determine where improvements can be made.
