Remote work, also referred to as Telecommuting seems to be the trend of the future. This practice of working from home and using the internet, email, telephone and other Real-Time-Communication (RTC) tools as a means to share information with colleagues, is sharply increasing in South Africa.
Just a few short years ago, the practice may have seemed out of reach. Many companies are currently employing telecommuters and yet for others working remotely is still considered a big perk to be negotiated.
The South African landscape is unique. The Corporate Hub is reaching out to South African specialists on all levels to gain an insight into their opinions on remote work or telecommuting.
Do you think that remote work can increase employees' productivity, drive efficiency, boost morale and lower stress, or that it may have a negative effect on team work, company culture and clear communications? Make your voice heard and take part in our opinion poll.
The poll will be closing on 31 August 2017.
