Despite the high rate of unemployment, finding the right talent remains an issue. A recent survey by Robert Half reported that just over half the executives reported that it is difficult to find skilled professional talent currently.

When finding the right talent locally doesn’t pan out, relocation is often the only alternative. And while relocation adds to the human resources expense, the majority of firms recognize the importance of this component in attracting the talent they want. The 2010 Atlas Van Lines Corporate Relocation Survey reports that 67% of companies offered incentives to encourage relocations in 2010.

Studies Show Teleworkers Have More Job Satisfaction, and Work Harder!

A research study conducted by Kathryn Fonner, UWM and Michael Roloff, Northwestern University, analyzed conflicting perspectives on the advantages and disadvantages of a location-neutral workforce. Two sets of employees were surveyed: traditional employees, who work in an office-based setting with their colleagues on a full-time basis; and teleworkers, who work from a location of their choice outside of the traditional office at least three days a week.

The results showed that while physical proximity provides the advantage of daily face-to-face dialogue, it “may not be necessary for an effective and satisfying work environment”. There are also disadvantages such as less effective and autonomous time management. In fact, a primary conclusion of the study is that limited face-to-face communication offers many advantages.

By Joanna Bradley, Executive Recruiter, High Tech Sales & Marketing Division Manager

About 24 months ago I read a truly inspirational article that required immediate attention. The article, written in Outside Magazine, was about the 50 best places to work and I thought; well hell… why isn’t my company on that list? I have made it a mission to express to Outside staff and readers alike that Redfish Technology is deserving of an accolade or two for our work/life balance. And although I am still diligently trying to get us on that list, I figured I would share Redfish’s philosophy with our ever-growing fan club. Read more »
