Start-Up Guide for Telecommuting from Home Kilgore TX

Each of us enjoys the gifts of modern technology by telecommuting either full- or part-time. Anyone with a telephone, computer, and reliable high-speed access to the Internet can also reap the benefits of today’s information super-highway by telecommuting — that is, working from a remote location, more often that not your own home, while remaining productive to your team and to your company and enhancing both your quality of life and that of your family.

Start-Up Guide for Telecommuting from Home

Keep Your Day Job, Work From Home, and Even Improve Your Company's Productivity
By Gregory Grabowski, PE

My time is precious, and I guard it jealously. Every hour I spend on the road or in a car keeps me away from my family and the things that I enjoy.

I telecommute to save both time and money. Here are two other examples:

  • Andy, a Navy buddy of mine with a headhunting firm, has an amazing view of the West Virginia Hills from his desk. Each morning, he can gaze out his office window to take inspiration from the rolling hills and misty forests surrounding him. He walks upstairs from his home to his office and starts his day with a quick scan through his e-mail and then a morning teleconference through his wireless headset. His support team is 190 miles away in Washington, DC.
  • Maria, who runs an assessment publishing firm, begins her day with a morning call with key staff in the office as well as other telecommuting teams in both Oregon and Minnesota. She coordinates these activities from her home office in Southern California — 425 miles away from her main office in San Francisco.

Each of us enjoys the gifts of modern technology by telecommuting either full- or part-time. Anyone with a telephone, computer, and reliable high-speed access to the Internet can also reap the benefits of today’s information super-highway by telecommuting — that is, working from a remote location, more often that not your own home, while remaining productive to your team and to your company and enhancing both your quality of life and that of your family.

With more and more daily Internet-enabled collaboration across the office and across the country, your city and even your time zone become less and less relevant to your team’s productivity and your company’s bottom line. I used to get e-mails from team mates down the hall — literally steps away from me without a word being exchanged — while I would routinely send and receive e-mails to other colleagues across the country. It seems I could go an entire day without any work-related face-to-face interaction with my office-mates — and often wasted precious time with non-work related social interactions that interrupted my creative time. I’ve found that for my work, complex planning and management of international engineering and design projects, I need about a 40/60 split between uninterrupted creative time on the computer and face-to-face interaction with my teams. I meet this need by telecommuting.

The Best of Both Worlds
Andy’s work relies on a great deal of telephone time; “My work is voice-to-voice, instead of face-to-face,” says Andy. “I spend a lot of time talking, and it helps that I have a comfortable set-up and home office.” Andy has invested in high-end Bluetooth® enabled head-phones and has a quiet home office. He makes it into the office about once every couple of weeks as he travels the east coast working with clients. “Telecommuting offers me the flexib...
