While working from home may be seen as a perk or a benefit for the lucky few employees who have the option, it is also becoming an important part of the business ecosystem as companies look for ways to bring in the best talent regardless of their geography.

While telecommuting (working from home) may be seen as a perk or a benefit for the lucky few employees who have the option, it is also becoming an important part of the business ecosystem as companies look for ways to bring in the best talent regardless of their geography.

The key to having a highly collaborative remote employee is making sure they are equipped with the right telecommuting technology.

According to an article on Polycom’s blog, there is a tremendous opportunity to take the home-based worker and turn them into more productive employees by utilizing the benefits of videoconferencing. Some of the areas referenced include medicine and education. In both industries there are major gaps between specialists and those in need of their services. Whether a medical specialist or a specialist instructor, by adding the capabilities of video communication in their home office it good greatly reduce the time spent traveling to see students or patients and therefore allow more of these people to get the services they require.

While often thought of as a logical for remote sales or channel employees, the home office of the future may become a private practice for connecting people and services for businesses of all types.
