Contrary to popular belief, allowing employees to work remotely does not result in decreased productivity. In fact, through extensive research, Sitel found the exact opposite to be true. Work-at-home programs enable employees to more effectively manage their work and life schedules, delivering a refined focus on the work at hand rather than worrying about outlying life matters.

Rather than stressing over who will pick up their child from daycare while they are writing a metrics report, at-home workers fully focus on the task at hand and, in turn, deliver higher quality results for their employer. Employees can also eliminate the daily nuances that occur in the office, such as driving to and from work, making small talk by the water cooler, elongated lunch breaks, and downtime associated with inclement weather. Rather, remote workers can maximize work time and decrease wasted time.

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.
