Recent researches from Spanish Statistics Institute point that teleworkers tend to increase their productivity between 5% and 25%. Besides, as they do no have to move to their offices, that time they save can be spend in developing more tasks, which means that they can dedicate another 11% additional time to work.In this sense, most of the companies that have implemented teleworking policies agree that at least one 10% of the time their teleworking employees have improved their performance.
On the other hand, figures reveal that Spanish employers do not rely on teleworking as much as they could: only 27% of Spanish companies have teleworkers on payroll. In fact, current data place Spain below European average on teleworking, which reaches 35%. This is because in Spain, many of the employers consider that work flexibility does not fir their organizational needs. The reasons may be or the specific kind of activity they develop, either the lack of prevision for teleworking in their structural policies.This scenario contrasts with the conclusions issued in the article “Agent of change: The future of technology disruption in business“ elaborated by The Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by RICOH.
