Next Five Tips for Successful Telecommuting-2 Next

Requesting to telecommute may cause your manager to be concerned about your productivity. Suggest telecommuting starting at one day per week, and then finish off several projects on day one to show how focused you are. Once you’ve proven that you are more productive working from home than you are in the office, your manager will be much more likely to agree to it in the future.

Have you thought about working from home? Turns out you’re not alone. In fact, a large majority (87 percent) of people say schedules that would let them better manage work and personal or family life would be "extremely" or "very" important if they were job hunting, according to the latest study from the Families and Work Institute.

Estimates say that only about 2.3 percent of the American workforce currently telecommutes. However, experts say that number is increasing rapidly. Regular telecommuting grew by 61 percent between 2005 and 2009, according to a June 2011 report from the Telework Research Network.

As experts in the field of telecommuting technology, TeamViewer is now recommending five tips on how workers can negotiate their way into a flexible job and successfully convince managers that they can be more productive as a telecommuter.
