Telecommuting is a great way for companies to become truly global. When people outsource their jobs to other countries, it brings in new, international talent that the company might not otherwise attain. So even though a man recently sent his job to China, this brings in new opportunities for the company he worked for.
Outsourcing allows individuals to work remotely and at a more relaxed schedule than when required to appear at a brick and mortar location. This saves the individual cost related to commuting and often results in better quality of work for the company. Relaxed minds often function best. Fewer carbon emissions from commuting are also better for the environment.
Telecommuting is safe, and much more cost effective for many companies. Much of the work that is done for business nowadays can be completed from nearly any location. Therefore, telecommuting provides employees with greater flexibility, and improved work-life balance. Telecommuting can be safe for companies with proper security precautions put in place, as well as good employee training.
