Teleworking allows employees to work from home or another off-site location either part-time or on a full-time basis. The COVID-19 pandemic enabled employers to think differently about their work structure, leading to a sharp increase in teleworking.

Benefits of teleworking include: Increased employee productivity by eliminating the hassles of driving to and from the office; savings for employers on office space and parking costs; reduced absenteeism; recruitment and retention of skilled employees; improved customer service; reduced traffic congestion and improved air quality.
