The nature of being a Virtual Assistant means that we work from home, or sometimes travel to and fro client offices. But the majority of the work we do is from our home base, which means that families are better off with a parent in the home, society benefits from children being cared for by a family member.
We are proud to be a part of the government initiative at Telework.gov.au.
What is Telework?
Telework is working regularly from a place other than the office, in most cases from a home office. It utilises information and communications technology to stay connected to colleagues and work systems.
The pending rollout of the NBN will be a key enabler for telework as high-definition interactive environments between the traditional workplace and a teleworker’s location of choice become a reality.
The Australian Government’s aim to increase the take up of telework is part of its National Digital Economy Strategy which aims to position Australia as one of the world’s leading digital economies. The telework goal is to double Australia’s level of telework by 2020, so that at least 12 per cent of Australian employees report having a telework arrangement with their employers.
