Brosix Instant Messenger is a great way to stay in contact with work colleagues, co-workers and clients while telecommuting, either by working from home or anywhere there is internet access and a computer. Telecommuting has several benefits, some of which include:

  • Taking less sick days. Telecommuters take less sick days because they are working from home anyway when they are not feeling well or have a sick child. However, many telecommuters report that they have less stress and anxiety overall when they telecommute, leading to higher productivity and better overall health.
  • Having better technology. A telecommuter is more likely to spend money on higher quality office products for their home office than they may have done if they had to work in a corporate office most of the time. This can result in better computers and peripherals, leading to a better overall working environment.
  • Less Time Driving/Commuting. No drive to work can shave up to even 3 hours daily off someone’s day. This means less stress and more time at home with family and friends.
  • Possibly Better Communication. Telecommuting employees may make more of an effort to stay involved in the communication channels of the company so they can stay in the loop. This can lead to better teamwork effort on projects and better overall communication.

What are some of the other benefits to telecommuting? What about pitfalls?
