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.
