Here’s an excerpt from a BT case study.

“BT home workers are taking 63 per cent less sick leave than their office-based colleagues.

The retention rate following maternity leave stands at 99 per cent compared with a UK average of 47 per cent, saving BT an additional £7.4 million a year.

In terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) BT is avoiding the purchase of approximately 12 million litres of fuel per year, resulting in 54,000 tonnes less CO2 being generated in the UK.

Teleconferencing has eliminated the annual need for over 300,000 face-to-face

meetings, leading to savings of over £38.6 million a year. This has also removed the

need for over 1.5 million return journeys
