A revolution in work life structure – how the way you work is changing

Technological development is a tidal wave that we have been unable to suppress for decades now, with people constantly thinking creatively, innovatively and practically to take the next step, come up with the next big idea that can make life easier for folk like you and me. But this isn’t all just hypothetical, theoretical, abstract development, and nor is it just revolutionary changes like implanting a camera on the front of a phone to make ‘selfies’ a very real (very prevalent) possibility, or creating social media which allows you to share your #breakfast with the world.

Conference calling for the environmentally friendly business

We all know how detrimental frequent travel can be for our planet, emitting greenhouse gases and increasing our carbon footprint. In fact, in 2010, transport accounted for a reported 39% of energy consumption in the UK – a massive proportion. Of this, a huge 27% of energy consumption was made up from the emissions of road transportation. The sheer volume of cars at rush hour makes this statistic less surprising for all those of us who commute to work daily and are familiar with the congestion. But what if we could reduce, or completely eliminate, our commute? Conference calling offers one ideal way to do this, and to reduce our negative impact upon the environment.

Working from home – an opportunity made possible with conference calling

Conference calls can create and expand possibilities for people who wish, or need, to work from home. For many, working from home can be an ideal situation, or sometimes even the only option. Many life circumstances can make commuting to work every day extremely difficult and inconvenient: young children, disability, living far from the company’s base, having dependent family members or simply working better alone, rather than surrounded by groups of people. Thus, the ability to work from home opens up great professional opportunities for those who may otherwise have very little available to them.

However, while working from home may alleviate some of the pressures and difficulties confronted in the search for a suitable job, it can create new and unique issues. A key problem faced by many working from home is the lack of communication with employers and colleagues. The distance between them, the lack of daily face to face contact, can make workers feel out of the loop and alienated. This lack of communication can lead to high levels of stress, disorganisation and poor productivity for those working from home.

Managing remote staff – the power of conference calling

Employing remote staff can be a wise and beneficial decision both for the employer and the employee. Remote staffing offers a great employment opportunity for people who are skilled and committed workers, but perhaps more suited to introverted work than contributing to a wider team. It is also an ideal solution for people who are not easily able to travel to work for any reason, including having young children or a disability.
