A More Interactive Generation
The biggest benefit of the social media websites like Twitter and Facebook is that they have influenced the younger generation to share their knowledge and feel comfortable while engaging with others. This generation does not wait for the things to happens, they make it happen. They are not the ones who will wait for an array of emails to get the work started.
Workplace of Choice for Employees
People like to work from home in their own time after adjusting all their domestic priorities. They do not want to spend money on commutation to the office on a daily basis and be part of a working environment which becomes stale after some time. It is a proven fact that the productivity of the employees increases if they are allowed to work from home and most companies tend to give their best talent a free ticket as far as the working place is concerned.
Cost Saving for Employers
Running an office is fast becoming an extremely expensive option. The real estate prices in the corporate areas have sky rocketed. Add to it the cost of office equipment, internet connections, amenities like medical and transport, training cost etc, and you have a raw deal as an owner.
In addition to the increased productivity from the employees, better results can also be achieved in this way. You will only hire people who know their craft, and can detail a contract which relates their pays (and the bonuses, raises etc) to a certain minimum standard.
