When an employee works outside the office, this kind of work arrangement is known as
the telecommunicating. Under such work arrangement employees generally woks from home or
works in a locations, which is close to the home (Allen, Golden & Shockley, 2015). These
locations include libraries, coffee shops and several other venues. Another name of
telecommunicating is working from home. It is also known as e-communicating. There are
various benefits of the telecommunicating. Thus, the employers should inculcate the
telecommunicating work arrangement. To encourage the employers in allowing work from
home, all benefits and drawbacks should be highlighted.
Telecommunicating has already introduced in many industries. Examples of such
industries includes marketing, computer and software programming, customer service, sales and
other jobs in technology. Telecommunicating is also there for some radiologists and some
medical professionals. Hence, telecommunicating also benefitted various industries in increasing
productivity (Asgari & Jin, 2015). There are several reasons for why telecommunicating may act
as an essential tool of the organization to scale up the proficiency. Telecommunicating provides
greater flexibility to the employees. It saves the time of travelling to the office. It also enables the
employees to keep in touch with the employer and co-employees with the help of email and
The employees may also attend conference or meetings without going to the office.
Therefore, the remote work and telecommunicating should be encouraged by the employers. It
will benefit the company by improving productivity of the employees. As employees are
working in their comfort zone, they became more efficient and happy at work. Therefore, it helps
in boosting the productivity of the company (, 2019). Hence, employers should allow
work from home or telecommunicating at least once in a week.
In 2017, the United States (US) lost productivity of 1.8 trillion US dollars because of
healthy problems, excessive commuting and water cooler gossip. Thus, to increase the
productivity of the companies as well as country, the work arrangement like telecommunicating
should be adopted (He & Hu, 2015). In addition, many employees and managers also agreed that
remote work schedule may boost the productivity. To optimize the efficiency telecommunicating
is indispensable. As it allows employees to retain some time for their physical and mental well-
being. They can easily save time by not commuting to office far away from home. It also allows
a sick employee to recover soon and get to work as early possible. To surge the proficiency of an
organization, health of an employee is most essential. Other than improving health of the
employees, it would also scale down the carbon footprint. Moreover, it is beneficial for the entire
environment as it minimizes the number of vehicles (Zhu & Mason, 2014). Telecommunicating
also provides a chance to lead a healthy lifestyle by focusing on their mental and physical health.
Therefore, these advantages of the e-communicating would convince the employers.
Another advantage of the telecommunicating, which may encourage the employers is, it
will enable the organization to keep the older population in the workforce. According to the
report, around 74% of the older population of the US wanted to work with flexibility (Glass &
Noonan, 2016). Therefore, engaging these older experienced people in the workforce will
increase competencies and productivities of the organization. Another benefit of the e-
communicating involves cost curtailing. Any kind of businesses wanted to reduce the cost of the
organization in order to drive up profitability. It reduces operating cost of the company. It
