Have you considered Flexiworking?

Flexible working allows people to work remotely, avoid travelling in peak hour traffic and work around personal commitments. It can help your business cut costs, add value and increase productivity. It doesn't have to be a permanent work arrangement, or used every day. Even one or two days a week could be a great choice for your business.
Technology can help flexiworkers stay connected with colleagues and access business information. Flexiworking is used by all types of business in New Zealand as most staff need nothing more than a computer compatible with their workplace system and a broadband connection.

How do I maintain business productivity?
Studies show that people who work from home are more productive than their office counterparts. They have fewer interruptions, manage their time better and often work longer hours due to time saved from the daily commute. The key is to focus on outcomes and results. Supervisors and teleworkers just need to be clear about job expectations.

Is flexiworking suitable for all employees?
Flexiworking is not for everyone and not everyone wants it. Offering the opportunity is a management option not a universal employee benefit. Supervisors may select employees who have the right tasks, abilities and circumstances.

Is flexiworking suitable for my business?
Jobs are really just a collection of tasks. Some tasks may need to be done at the office, so the amount of flexiwork an employee can do will depend on how many of their tasks can be done away from the office. Flexiworking may not suit all business environments.
