Businesses that only offer in-office positions limit themselves to a very specific talent pool of employees. These businesses are forced to hire professionals who are local to their offices or to ask new hires to relocate. However, work-at-home programs equip companies with a broader talent pool from which to choose their employees. Additionally, employees with flexible work schedules have a lower propensity to switch jobs, which ultimately means reduced attrition, fewer interruptions due to new hire learning curves, and increased knowledge retention for businesses.

All across the United States, work-at-home programs are continuing to gain momentum. In fact, it is anticipated that 43 percent of the U.S. workforce will work remotely by 2016, according to Mashable. In addition to the many benefits for employees, businesses are also experiencing financial and non-financial benefits that had not been previously foreseen. In fact, one of the greatest drivers for deploying a work-at-home program is an increase in bottom-line results. Here are five areas where an at-home workforce pays off, as identified by Sitel, a global customer care provider.
