LEEDS, ENGLAND, October 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The past two weeks have seen the UK hit by some of the heaviest rainfall in many years, with a month's rain falling in just 24 hours in some areas. Adverse weather can have a devastating effect on people's homes and businesses, and flooding and heavy snowfall can mean that getting from your home into the office is very difficult.
To enable your business to continue running whatever the weather, you should consider home working options. Allowing your employees to work from home instead of putting themselves at risk by trying to travel to work in bad weather is both safer and more efficient in adverse weather.
With the right business telephone systems set up, and with business mobile solutions and mobile broadband, you can equip your employees with everything they need for a small home office, at minimal cost.
Diva Telecom has the following advice on enabling home working at minimal cost to your business:
(1) Business Mobile Broadband for Home Offices - Mobile broadband for your employees can be easily accessible at their home office, simply by giving staff 3g internet dongles from your business account. These will charge internet use to your business account, and means your staff aren't relying on their own internet connection, which may be a slower speed and thus have an impact on productivity.
(2) Business Telephone Systems - Most business telephone systems now allow for call routing, which allows calls received on the usual office number to be redirected seamlessly through to a home office, with no difference for the caller. This service is often included as part of a business telephone package.
(3) Business Mobile Solutions - Many of your employees may already have a business mobile phone, so working from home and answering calls is no problem. Your business mobile solutions supplier should be able to advise on how to add additional phones to your account for other employees, whilst also managing your costs
For further advice on how to weather-proof your business and facilitate home working for your employees through mobile broadband, contact small business telecommunications supplier Diva Telecom on 08000 12 68 68.
