Management of Mobile Workers

It provides employees flexible working conditions that empower them and is also beneficial to the business.Mobile working ensures that the business doesn’t have to worry about office space for the mobile workers but this however does not mean that the business owner is not responsible for ensuring that the employees are provided the same connectivity as the office bound employees.A recent report of a study undertaken by CISCO underlines the need for good management when it comes to mobile workers.... While under communication may make the employees feel isolated and unclear of work goals, over communication may lead to undermining the trust of mobile workers.Stuart Duff, the author of the report is also an occupational psychologist at Pearn Kandola, says “As the mobile working phenomenon continues to grow, organizations must ensure that they have suitable leadership in place to manage teams of mobile workers.”The recruitment of mobile workers is of utmost importance and business owners need to look for self motivated, confident, determined and independent workers.

Businesses Benefit From Switching Off Computers

What may be a choice of convenience is actually costing the company and the environment dearly.According to a report by software solution provider 1E, market research firm Harris Interactive and Alliance to Save Energy, 104 million employed people work on computers everyday and a shocking 60% or 62.4 million do not shut their computers when they leave for the day.... This is money that can be utilized for more productive reasons and can well be controlled simply by adopting a policy to turn off computers at the end of the work day.Every year we pump 14.4 million tons of CO₂ into the environment only due to the computers that are on at night, even if they are in hibernation mode.
