Sneakers41-I will tell you that a growing number of companies are looking to allowing employees to work from home because it saves them a lot of money in carrying costs and expenses of housing the employees in an office.
For example, many call centers are outsourcing their work to third party companies that hire teams of contractors to service the company’s clients.
These contractors get paid on a per call basis and unlike the traditional employee that is offered an hourly wage regardless if the phone rings, the contractor only gets paid if they answer a call. This allows the company to offer the highest productivity model and saves a lot of money because they do not have to pay an employee to stay idle.
I know that many companies are offering more creative work environments. Companies like Pixar and Google’s work environment allow employees a flexible schedule in which they can alter their work schedule according to their personal life and as long as they commit to their forty hours a week, the company does not care how it is done.
The amazing perks at these companies ensures that the turnover is almost nonresistant and getting a job with these companies is difficult.
