Canadian Teleworking: Study shows growth trends


A new study on telework released by Bank of Montreal shows that 1/3 of employers with telework programs see this work strategy as a way to reduce costs and increase productivity. Interestingly, nearly twice as many small businesses are actively supporting telework compared to large businesses (50 or more employees). Those enlightened organizations (small or large) that enable telework also realize other benefits, including expanded talent acquisition opportunities, talent retention, enhanced business continuity, decreased carbon footprint, improved work-life balance, as well as the fundamental savings in real estate and gains in productivity.

Bottom line: it certainly DOES compute to telecommute!
