OnConference looks back at 2013, forward to ’14

happy new year sign

Everyone at OnConference is a remote worker.

We work from our homes, from coffee shops, from hotels or wherever we can find an internet connection.

We use our own technology — conference calling and web conferencing — to communicate with each other.

The practice keeps our productivity high and our costs low, a benefit that allows lower charges to our valued customers.

We’re excited to see where telecommuting can go, whether employers adopt full-time work-from-home programs for employees or ease into it with flexible scheduling. Some employees, on the other hand, are leaving their full-time jobs in pursuit of flexible work opportunities.

Freelancing, according to the Business News Daily, suits their personal lives and schedules “better than a 9-to-5 office gig.”

Global Workplace Analytics and the Telework Research Network reported a few weeks ago that the telecommuting workforce in the United States grew 42 per cent between 2006 and 2012. State government telework grew 60 per cent, although the federal government practice declined by 2.4 per cent.

As more private companies realize the benefit of less real estate and other lower costs, we expect they’ll join the trend.

And here we’ll be, helping the businesses stay connected with their remote teams around the world.
