What Is Telecommuting?

Posted by Valencia on June 9th, 2009

If you’ve never considered telecommuting or telework….maybe now’s the time.

Business reports frequently focus on employers looking for ways to cut costs. Meanwhile, employees seek ways to spend more time with their family and increase productivity. Thus, telecommuting has been a feasible solution for both employees and employers.

But what exactly is telecommuting? Does this term refer to any and everyone who works from home?

Not necessarily?I often refer to myself as a telecommuter. On one hand, I’m a self-employed, independent contractor who set’s my own hours and chooses my own assignments. But on the other hand, I complete projects for clients and I communicate with them via phone and e-mail. I may not fit the “true blue” definition of a telecommuter - who’s generally employed by a specific company and maintains direct communication with a boss or supervisor - but I work in a remote location, I use telecommuting technologies and conference calls are a monthly ritual.

Telecommuting can be a perfect fit for anyone who wants the flexibility of setting their own hours or working in their pajamas. And since telecommuter’s aren’t always home based business owners, but rather employees for a company, it’s the ideal choice for people who don’t want to constantly search for new clients, or deal with the hassle of operating their own business.

Some companies rarely advertise for telecommuters. And to qualify for this luxury, employees usually have to be employed with the company for a specific time period. But don’t let this discourage you. Obtaining the flexibility you need can be as simple as putting the idea in your bosses head. And who knows, your boss might be open to the agreement…..but you won’t know unless you ask.
