With telecommuting and remote working gaining in popularity as a mode of work; it is essential for managers today to add one more skill to their resume: the ability to manage remotely located teams effectively. This ability is not rocket science or a faculty present in only select individuals. It can be developed over time, with practice and persistence.
When managed efficiently, telecommuting is a great benefit to organizations, as employees will be working in a more familiar environment, will be able to give more time to their family and strike a better work-life balance, which is a major factor in higher levels of creativity and productivity, will be able to divert the time spent on travel towards work, will be relatively stress free, and can be made to work at their peak productive or creative time, which is not necessarily during office hours, and so on.
It is necessary for organizations to understand the dynamics of telecommuting and remote working if they have to manage it efficiently and get the most out of it. If this is not done, the whole idea goes topsy-turvy, resulting in many roadblocks and hardships.
