Telecommuting techonology for governmentAs government agencies continue to document and refine teleworking processes to comply with the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, managers are trying to identify and implement tools and services that remote workers need in order to maintain workflow and collaboration with colleagues.

In a recent white paper, industry analysts at Frost and Sullivan outlined key technology components that should be available to employees who telecommute including, laptops, instant messaging, VoIP, smart phones and more. The paper also looked closely at the importance of web conferencing in teleworking:

In a recent survey of 200 C-level executives, 53 percent said their companies use Web conferencing—more than any other advanced communications technology (including instant messaging, video conferencing and even Voice over IP). Better still, organizations usually find that while they start using Web conferencing as a replacement for in-person events and large group meetings, they very often continue to use it on a daily basis to improve the quality of meetings that would otherwise be held only on the phone or not at all.


ReadyTalk’s audio and web conferencing can help government agencies and department managers realize a variety of benefits:

 


  • Employee engagement: Telework programs can boost employee engagement because workers get a more flexible schedule and the elimination of daily commutes, which saves them time and money.

  • Reduced facilities and related costs: Because employees are working at home, they don’t need permanent offices or cubicles, which also reduces related costs including power and water bills, security, parking, maintenance services, etc.

  • Reduced environmental impact: Eliminating or reducing employees’ commutes has a substantial environmental impact.
