Five Tips on How to Conduct Business and Save Money at the Gas Pump-6

There is a lot that can be done using Skype and other services just like it,” says Vickery. “Anything from interviewing, training, meeting or even a virtual lunch break can be handled from just about anywhere, as long as the device you are on is equipped with a camera.”

Poland adds,"And there may be times where you don’t need a camera. Sometimes, video calls can be distracting. Skype works well for audio calls and screen sharing. It’s ideal for small group trainings or computer one-to-one support. And, you don’t need to clean your office or throw on a suit jacket. If you wanted, without a video camera, no one will know if you’re working from home in your PJ’s.”

Profitability is a big factor for businesses striving to stay afloat and keep employees happy. With the additional costs incurred from commuting, small and large businesses alike are turning more often to telecommuting and teleconferencing.

Here are five easy ways to help put the "tele" into your business and a couple extra dollars back into your (and your employees’) pocket, as identified by Jody Knouse Poland, co-founder and chief engagement officer of The Renaissance Group, and Jennifer Vickery, CEO of National Strategies Public Relations.
