FreedomVOICE® proposes telecommuting as a viable option to control the spread of the H1N1 virus in the workplace and offers tips to business owners to develop a work at home policy.
Encinitas, CA (Vocus) -- FreedomVOICE®, creators of the FreedomIQ® hosted VoIP PBX, have proposed telecommuting as a viable option to control the spread of the H1N1 virus in the workplace.
Whether we like it or not, the H1N1 virus is among us. While the virus affects our health, it can also affect our business. But smart CEO’s are taking precautions to end the virus’s daily commute.
“If an employee is feeling ill, they should be given the opportunity to work from home if they can still be productive,” said Eric Thomas, CEO of FreedomVOICE systems. “If the entire company is infected with the flu at the same time it could be devastating.”
Telecommuting is a weapon being used at the forefront of the fight against H1N1. And with today’s advances in telecommunications technology there are a variety of options available to business owners who want to enable their employees to work from home. A popular telecommuting technology is hosted VoIP PBX phone systems. These Internet based phone systems allow you to seamlessly connect all members of your office, regardless of where they are located. One such product is the FreedomIQ Hosted VoIP PBX by FreedomVOICE.
“FreedomIQ is a VoIP phone system that you can utilize anywhere you have Internet access,” explains Thomas. “The device is perfect for telecommuters. It enables unified messaging, advanced call reporting, automatic call distribution, and more for a value driven rate.”
While working from home used to be frowned upon, today, the practice has been largely adopted by companies in the US.
“According to recent research conducted by Techaisle, currently over 80% of businesses in the US have a work at home policy,” says Thomas. “But all businesses have the ability to help alleviate fears associated with the H1N1 virus by allowing those concerned to work from home.”
FreedomVOICE offers the following as a basis for companies to evolve their own H1N1 work at home policy from.
