Telecommuting offers many benefits for employers, employees and the environment. Employers often see an increase in productivity among remote employees and it greatly reduces absenteeism and employee turnover. It can also reduce overhead expenses for your company.

Employees have a lot more freedom when working from home. They can set their own hours for the most part, take breaks when they need to and it helps individuals to balance work and personal time better.
