Adding Telecommuting Capabilities to Your Business

Adding Telecommuting Capabilities to Your Business

Whether you want create a more flexible work schedule for your employees or abandon brick and mortar altogether, we can help.

There are many benefits to utilizing a virtual office over a traditional office:

  • Reduced fixed costs:  By utilizing teleworkers you reduce the need for office space, furniture and equipment. In some cases, you may be able to designate your employees as independent contractors. Your workers compensation and liability insurance may also get reduced.
  • Talent Pool:  Telework positions are highly desirable from an employee’s perspective. The recruiting advantage it gives you over your competition is difficult to quantify but here is one example of its value: at E Billing Solutions, we have over 20,000 applications on file from qualified medical billers. Additionally, you are not constricted geographically. Work-from-positions allow you to search nationally, even globally, for the right candidates.
  • Employee Retention: Employees are much happier with their work/life balance when they are allowed to telework.  Our turnover rate is less than 5% while the national turnover rate is 15%. This reduces hiring and training costs, while providing our clients with enduring relationships and service consistency.
  •  Increased productivity:  Do you want your employees to be evaluated on their results or on their attendance?  Teleworking actually improves  productivity. Change your corporate culture to align  with your company’s long term goals.
