Bagging the best talent.


Is your organisation ready to promote homeworking?

Organisations who pioneer homeworking create competitive advantage in their markets by bagging the best talent.  The percentage of businesses enabling staff to work from home has climbed to 61% in 2017 and is rising.

The gap between these bold forerunners and those businesses that are lagging behind is set to grow wider over the next couple of years.  We can help you to get your organisation ready to take advantage of the business benefits.

We have a full suite of templates, policies, procedures, tip and hints to share with you as you pilot your first homeworking team

Some business benefits are obvious.  Reduced overhead, cost savings from less office space, a wider talent pool because you are not just restricted to those on your doorstep, 24/7 coverage and the like. It’s a tried and tested with contact centres, web chat and IT experts but there are other reasons to begin looking at this gem of a concept right now.

Attract the best talent!

Brainy workers are set to become the premium talent in the new world of work and it is they that will influence the agenda for homeworking.  If you are not offering it then you’re going to attract second rate candidates who will put up with the drudgery of commuting.

Line managers are often the ones who object to home working and this is because they don’t know how to adjust their style to that of managing homeworkers.  We can help coach your team leaders and managers in the effective art of managing remote workers


91% of workers are more productive when working remotely.
For example, Cisco has saved

  • $277m annually in productivity by allowing remote working,
  • 63% reduced absence from work using Remote Working model

We’ve recently helped a business introduce homeworking and seen productivity rise by 13.5%.  That’s almost an extra day a week
