Businesses in the Houston-Galveston region implement telework as a strategy to reduce traffic congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and real estate costs while remaining competitive in the workforce. Studies have also shown that formal telework programs can increase employee productivity, morale, and work-life balance.
Telework is also an important tool for business continuity and resiliency. It can be a vital component of continuity planning should emergencies (e.g. health crisis, weather emergency, etc.) make conventional commuting difficult. Teleworking can also be an important strategy for reducing corporate costs such as office space and employee parking. For many businesses, working from home also improves employee morale.
Larger employers with a diverse workforce may be eligible for a no-cost consultation with our expert team and receive a custom implementation plan and resources.
