How Teleworking Makes Our Team Happier and Productive
The 20th of september is national Working From Home-day in Belgium as part of the mobility week. Too often teleworking is seen as a solution for public transportation strikes, snowfall, or personal problems.
At Sitemanager we firmly believe that teleworking is an essential part of a great working environment and leads to happier and healthier coworkers.
Teleworking is a Solution For Many Problems
At SiteManager, we have the policy of structural teleworking. Employees are allowed to work from home whenever they want.
We firmly believe that having the options to work from home offers many benefits:
- More focus - especially for our developers
- Less distraction from colleagues
- Saving time - less time wasted on commuting
- More flexibility
- Less stress
How Do We Manage it?
There are no strict rules at SiteManager. We can choose how many days a week we work from home. Some team members only come to the office once or twice a week, others prefer working from the office every day.
We keep in touch via our group chat, skype and email. Every monday on our team meeting, we all gather around the table and teleworkers call in from their homes.
At SiteManager, we believe that traditional web design development cycles are time-consuming, redundant and out-dated. The same applies to company cultures.
Experimenting with new innovative ways of working results in happier and healthier team members, enabling us to work together on smart technology.
