(PRWEB) March 08, 2013
The knotted employee tangled in telephone cords and masked in a heavy headset is an animal on the brink of extinction. Instead, the employee doing business on their smartphone at the office, on the way to the office, or outside of the office is the new norm. And it’s a profitable new norm for businesses to embrace.
Telecommuting full-time or part-time is on the rise in the US, and according to a 2012 study done by the US Labor Bureau, telecommuting leads to more productivity and higher employee retention. And according to VoIP expert Rachel Greenberg, mobile communication doesn’t have to be expensive, and that’s why mobile VoIP is such an asset to businesses.
