Employees can work from home from a PC and stay in contact with their office via the telephone or email. Employees can spend part or all of their time working from home although spending at least part of the time in the workplace helps to avoid becoming isolated.
The benefits to the employee are:
- Flexibility in making child care arrangements
- Less time taken off work to look after a sick child.
The benefits to the employer are:
- Improved productivity because home workers can schedule there working patterns to fit in at their most productive time.
- Fewer overheads in terms of office space.
