Teleworking refers to working remotely, from home or another location, by connecting to your employer electronically. For example, employees can access their files and emails remotely while meetings can be conducted through tele or video conferencing. Since face-to-face interaction will always be important, many people find a balance by splitting their time between teleworking and the office. Teleworking just one day a week can have a significant positive impact on commuting costs, work-life balance and the environment. Contact your employer to see if this option is available.
Alternate Working Arrangements
Many employers offer alternate working arrangements that allow for flexibility in your schedule so that you can spend less time on your commute and achieve better work-life balance. Ask your employer about compressed work weeks, job-sharing or flextime. Contact your employer to see if this option is available.
