For Employers. Tapping into the hidden talent pool. Teleworking is on the rise
Working flexibly from a home office has big benefits to employees, employers and the environment. For employees, it results in savings in expenses related to commuting such as petrol and car maintenance, but perhaps more important, it can mean a better work-life balance, less stress and more job satisfaction. With less staff on-site, employers will save on office space, electricity and office expenses and will experience an improvement in productivity due to the higher employee morale of those with flexible work schedules.
Businesses of all sizes are appreciating more and more how Teleworking can benefit them as an organisation and position them as an Employer of Choice. By providing this type of flexible working you will attract more talent to your organisation. This will help you keep trained, skilled people whose changing circumstances may otherwise have led them to leave. Higher retention rates of staff and increased return rates from parental leave. When an Employer holds onto its most skilled and experienced people its good news for all involved. Staff morale is higher and this increases your bottom line, productivity and profits
Mums In Business
Many mums come up to me to say that they’ve always wanted to have their own home based business. They dream of quitting their jobs, pursuing their passion, looking after their family and living the life of an entrepreneur.
Not everyone though has the guts to make the transition from a corporate job to setting up your own business. To be honest, working at home is not as easy as it sounds. You have to be financially, emotionally and mentally prepared before you go into this.
A big part of succeeding in one's business is in loving what you do. You must have the passion for it. Passion will motivate you to achieve your goals and objectives, and would allow you to remain committed with your business.
Everybody should be able to achieve what they want in life. But just like anything else, you need to work hard attain that dream. With perseverance and a lot of preparation, you just might be on your way to that dream. I wish you every success in the world.
What About Men?
Generally speaking, we LOVE them. But we wanted to design a place where women rule (Girl Power Stuff) and all the things that matter to them. So, while we won't make a big fuss about them, men are more than welcome to join and contribute to the Network.
Mum bloggers have exploded in numbers over the past few years, but it seems that the Dads have been watching and listening and want to get in on the game. They are known as Dad Bloggers and Work At Home Dads. They write about the quirky, messier parts of parenthood and share humorous tips and advice on parenting, fatherhood, children, and coping with wives and mother in laws. They are changing the rules and changing the way we think about fatherhood. They are funny.
