Yes! Our employee, Chad Andrus, works from home and on average he gets more tickets (service requests) completed than all of the other techs. He says he still feels part of the team and loves the fact that he didn’t have to forfeit his job when his wife’s company transferred them to the tidewater area. He doesn’t mind at all that he gets to spend more time with his family either versus looking at his windshield and I’m certain he has saved on his wardrobe because when he skype’s in for meetings he is usually sporting his Detroit sports t shirts.
Since signing up for the Telework program all of our employees, including myself, have only benefited from working from home. The reality is you don’t need to come to work to get work done and like in Chad’s case you will typically get more work done.
