Is telecommuting the solution to heavy Nashville traffic?
Tired of Nashville traffic? Yes, that's a rhetorical question. However, this next one isn't. Have you asked your boss if you can work from home?
If you are the head of the company, have you considered letting workers telecommute?
Nashville city leaders say the city is going to need more businesses to open up to the idea as part of a bigger plan to manage the growing traffic problem.
With tunnels, light rail and AMP all failing, experts say telecommuting equals winning and Gild agrees.
“In 2018, employers need to be able to provide that benefit,” Gild said.
The top fields offering remote work are medical and health, customer service, IT, accounting, education and administration and the work ranges from entry level to executive positions. Some studies show companies save about $11, 000 dollars per telecommuter in office expenses and operational costs.
