HR News: CEO commentary on Amazon’s homeworking announcement

In response to Amazon’s announcement that the company will hire up to 5,000 home-based customer service agents, CEO of SensĂ©e, Steve Mosser, commented in HR News:

At SensĂ©e, we welcome Amazon’s announcement. Although this is restricted to the US for the time being, the fact that Amazon is not only embracing homeworking but that the positions come with employee benefits, including sick and holiday pay, will hopefully encourage others to build on strong social foundations. This shows both courage and thought leadership, as it addresses the issues the gig-economy has brought into the job market where people are given no option other than to accept false self-employed with no guarantees of work, income and benefits.Read the article

Sensée in The Telegraph: Do you need an office?

Remote working isn’t just for small companies

At Sensee, a customer service provider, almost all 800 employees work from home. The company provides all the software, but staff must have their own desktop computer, phone, broadband connection and a secluded space to work. “It’s as much for the security of the employee as for the data of the client,” says Steve Mosser, founder and chief executive. “We don’t do things with laptops, as Wi-Fi networks aren’t secure – and we have a health and safety responsibility to the people we employ, which is limited to the vicinity of their work stations.”  Read the article

Home workers happier, able to balance responsibilities

Insight-header

New research claims that home-based employees are choosing to work more hours than those who work in traditional offices. According to the study carried out by homeworking agency SensĂ©e, despite opting to work more hours daily, home workers are generally happier because they’re empowered to choose the hours they work so they can still attend to family responsibilities. Three quarters of home workers (77 percent) stated that working from home enables them to achieve more, including caring for family members or friends and exercising more. Time and money saved on commuting – along with more control over their day – were cited among the top three benefits of working from home. Access the findings

Three quarters of current home-based employees (77%) stated that working from home enables them to achieve more in their day, including caring for family members or friends, exercising more and further education. Read the article

British home workers are also spending more time caring for family members

New research has found that home-based employees are choosing to work more hours than when they worked in traditional offices, according to research carried out by Sensée.

Despite opting to work more hours daily, the research found that home workers are happier because they’re empowered to choose the hours they work so they can still attend to family responsibilities. Three quarters of current home-based employees (77%) stated that working from home enables them to achieve more in their day, including caring for family members or friends, exercising more and further education.

Time and money saved on commuting – along with more control over their day – were cited among the top three benefits of working from home.

“Homeworking has progressed massively in the past five years. We’re at what we are calling the next generation of homeworking, or Homeworking 2.0. This is where all barriers associated with home working are removed, including the challenge of trust between an employer and employee. Critically, our ecosystem enables people to choose when they work, and employers have peace-of-mind that they are fully focused on work activities when they do,” explains Steve Mosser, CEO of SensĂ©e.

“Although home working isn’t for everyone, it gives those that want to an opportunity to have more control over their day by being truly empowered to build their work hours around their life. As the UK’s biggest employer of home workers, many of our staff choose to convert the hours saved on commuting to work more. The great news is that they’re still overall happier and have a better work/life balance – largely because they don’t need to sacrifice time doing things that are important to them, and most importantly when they want to do them,” said Mosser.

The research revealed a desire to work from home among office-based employees. Three-fifths (81%) of office-based employees said they would take the opportunity to work from home (full time/part time) to care for a family member or friend.

A number of office workers expressed their cynicism about homeworking due to a fear of either distractions or loneliness. However Homeworking 2.0 has been successful in addressing both of these concerns through technology and new ways of collaborative working.

Offering both full-time and part-time home working positions, SensĂ©e gives employees a rewarding career serving customers of the UK’s leading brands.
