Overview

Managing the Telecommuting Employee: Set Goals, Monitor Progress, and Maximize Profit and Productivity by Michael Amigoni, Sandra Gurvis

A bigger and bigger part of the workforce is telecommuting. And managers need new skills to get the most out of this increasingly far-flung staff. This indispensable guide includes case studies, checklists, and sample forms and charts. It shows managers how to use teleconferencing technology to communicate with distanced workers, make the best use of scheduling software to monitor productivity, and even end the arrangement if it's not working.

One of the best ways for companies to save money in lean times is to send their employees home to work. But that requires a different kind of workforce and a different kind of management. This book shows how to make the long-distance relationship work for everyone!

Telework sounds simple. Let an employee work from home. Ensure that he or she has a desk, a computer and a working phone line. Ready, set, go; right? But what if the teleworker has an accident in the home office you authorized? Can your company get sued? What about the teleworker's tax status, workers' compensation or benefits? Of course, you might also wonder how you supervise a staffer you may never see, for example, someone who lives on the other side of the globe. Setting up employees in home offices is not as straightforward as it sounds. But, fortunately, Michael Amigoni and Sandra Gurvis phone in everything you need to know in this detailed yet comprehensive book. Drawing on their decades of experience managing remote workers, they present savvy advice on how to develop and run a successful telework program. If telecommuting is part of your company's future (or its present), getAbstract recommends this useful manager's manual.
