Vonage Adds To The Telecommuter Experience


Vonage In Print News

Making The Case

February 28, 2005

By Mike Drummond

Telework: 24 million Americans work from home. Will the trend spread?

Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist became the nation's highest profile telecommuter last week, thrusting the issue of working off-site into the spotlight.

Rehnquist, 80, will read transcripts of oral arguments from home as he battles thyroid cancer.

He joins an estimated 24 million Americans who "telework" full or part time, a figure that's remained flat over the past few years, according to data compiled by the International Telework Association and Council. It remains to be seen if Rehnquist's work-from-home routine will jump-start a practice regarded in many quarters as a cure for car pollution, traffic congestion and work-life balance.

Survey results this month of federal workers showed that some agencies are dragging their heels when it comes to telecommuting, even after Congress established incentives for agencies that promote telework options, according to government-focused IT vendor CDW Government.

Telework proponents note that despite uneven job creation through much of this decade, teleworking has remained relatively stable. Any lull is temporary, they say, arguing that advancing high-speed and wireless Internet connectivity, which sparked a wave of telecommuting in the late 1990s, will keep the movement aloft.

"I think we're at the early stages of a ground shift and you're going to see more people work from where ever they can work," says Brooke Schulz, spokeswoman for Vonage.

Shifting expectations also will drive more companies to embrace alternative work arrangements, says Jen Jorgensen, spokeswoman for the Society for Human Resource Management.

Work-life balance is becoming increasingly important for Gen-Xers and Gen-Yers, Jorgensen says. "Things like compensation and benefits will always be important, but the new generation wants something more than a 60-hour work week," she adds.

Yet even advocates such as Jorgensen note that telework is not for everyone. The unorganized, unmotivated or those new to the labor force are better served with conventional arrangements.

And some jobs such as manufacturing and retail, which represent a large slice of Charlotte's labor force, will never be suited for telecommuting. Thus the collective gasp last year from local businesses when there was talk at the county level of requiring companies with 20 or more employees to draft plans to reduce commuter miles by 25 percent during summer ozone-alert days. Those plans, since shelved, included requiring employees to use public transportation and telecommute.

Dexter Stulz doesn't need the threat of a regulation to compel him to have some of his staff telecommute. The human resource manager at Max Daetwyler, which manufactures and services printing equipment, says as much as 40 percent of the company's 100 Huntersville employees work off-site at any given time.

Many of those are service representatives and sales people, whose jobs naturally carry them out of the office. While Stulz believes employees work better face-to-face, the company embraces a liberal telework policy for its nonmanufacturing work force.

"It's a good idea to explore possibilities to work from home at least from time to time," Stulz says. If a family obligation or other situation forces a worker to stay at home, given the option to call in absent or call in to work from the house, "it makes more sense to go with the latter."

Teleworking Tips

  • Discuss productivity expectations or what you'll be doing with supervisor before hand.
  • Remain accessible via e-mail or phone; establish communication routine with office.
  • Have a dedicated work space at home that puts you in a job frame of mind.
  • High-speed Internet access to the company's system is a must.
  • Use your office answering machine or voice mail to provide status to callers and change it daily.
