The technology for telecommuting

Technology has made telecommuting easy.

Imagine working from 20 years ago, when home computers were clunky and not very user-friendly. Or home internet connections weren’t always accessible.

Enter 2013.

The equipment and access we need to conduct our job from anywhere is easily attainable.

laptop and phone

When you’re talking to your manager about moving to a telework position, or when you’re interviewing for a job that needs you to work from home, you should be ready with a plan and the very basics of technology:

✓ An area in your home set aside as an office

✓ A dedicated phone line

✓ High-speed internet

You might not think a dedicated phone line is necessary. It is, however, important for reliability. Your conference calls and web conferences with your manager, teammates, clients and customers need the security of a phone line that won’t beep in with call waiting for calls from your family, dentist or kids’ schools.

Stay connected to your team

Conference calls and web conferences will become your lifeline to staying connected to your work projects.

They’re a way for groups to easily have conversations about jobs, tasks and projects. When a team stays connected, they can work together to find solutions and continue to meet business objectives.

Your manager should schedule regular meetings with you, the other telecommuters and the in-office staff to bridge any gaps in communication. You and your team can brainstorm ideas, discuss strategies and project needs, or just check in and update everyone on progress.

Telecommuting isn’t the answer for every company, every job function or every individual, but it can be a terrific solution for the right situation.

Regular conversation will improve your team’s cohesion and productivity, and promote a steady flow of ideas.

Good communication is the key to your success when you work from home.

Your turn

What technology do you need to accomplish your job tasks from home? Are you a bit old school and still need a fax? How about a printer?
