Dajon Provides Support for Transition to a Home Working Environment
Our whole philosophy is about helping organisations remove the dependency on manual paper based system by transitioning to electronic document management. This transition supports a change in working practices. Staff no longer need to be co-located to manage and contribute to the business processes that they are involved in, providing the freedom to work away from the office and supporting a policy of home or remote working. In short our proposition supports clients looking to implement a home working policy and support infrastructure.
Our clients find that once they have made that transition they see some substantial improvements helping to deliver a leaner more competitive business:
- Staff productivity
- Reduced processing errors and paperwork
- Lower processing costs
- Increased processing times
All of these are important and measurable and enable most organisations to put together a cost justification for making the change.
Home Working Is Important in Both Cost Saving and Carbon Reduction
Home working is viewed as an integral part of any carbon reduction program, the benefits and potential savings are obvious to see particularly for larger organisations.
Cost comparisons show that maintaining a worker at home is often considerably cheaper than maintaining a permanent desk at the office. Desks can be shared and many organisations operate a hot-desking environment with workers attending face-to-face meetings or briefings for internal meetings or meetings with clients and suppliers. On that basis many organisations see home working as an alternative to operating large centralised office space.
Carbon emissions from cars contribute significantly to the carbon footprint of the country as a whole and in a home working environment workers no longer need to travel in and out of work. Not only does this have a direct affect on the workers living wage it also has a considerable impact in terms of carbon footprint.
Home working delivers additional benefits
There are clear indications and case studies that have demonstrated a positive impact in that worker productivity and happiness improves, resulting in fewer sick days and having a direct effect on staff productivity and staff retention helping to make businesses more competitive.
What are the contributing factors to an effective home working strategy?
Modern technology and IT systems make this possible and to-date this philosophy of home or remote working has been easy to apply to specific functions within business particularly the field based functions such as engineering, sales and management.
However, historically applying this to the more administrative functions such as accounts payable, HR, procurement has been more challenging for many organisations. The reason for this is that the many of these processes operated by the more administrative functions are often manual paper based systems that depend heavily on worker co-location.
