Are You Fed Up Travelling Long Distances To Work Every Day?

Well, you’re not alone.

Studies show a long commute to work increases the risk of obesity, neck pain, stress, worry, sleeplessness and even divorce. It also means less exercise and less healthy lives.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The solution is simple.

Instead of commuting long distances every day, you can work from Omagh Enterprise Centre.

How does it work?

Well, instead of driving to work 5 days a week, you can work from Omagh Enterprise Centre one or more days a week and commute for the rest.  It’s that simple.

But this is just a rough guideline. The solution can be tailored to suit you and your employer.

How much time can I save?

Lots! Think of it this way. Take, for example, that you travel from Omagh to Belfast 5 days a week. That’s 66 hours per month commuting, which works out at 30 days a year spent in a car or on a bus.

If you work for a company in Belfast for 12 years, this is the equivalent of spending a FULL YEAR  commuting.

If you are commuting, you aren’t spending quality time with your family and friends. You’re not exercising, walking the dog, or playing with your children (or xbox). You’re not doing any of the things that generally make you happy and relaxed.

How much money can I save?

On fuel costs alone an average commuter travelling from Omagh to Belfast will spend approximately £5,000 per year on fuel before taking parking costs into account.

Are people who telecommute generally people in their 20s or mothers with small children?

No. Studies show the typical telecommuter is a 49-year-old college graduate — man or woman — who earns about £34,000 a year and belongs to a company with more than 100 employees, (according to numbers culled from the Census Bureau’s annual American Community Survey).

What is the best way to approach my employer about letting me work from Omagh?

We understand that introducing the idea of working from another location can be daunting. But don’t worry we have developed a step-by-step plan to address any concerns your employer may have about the process.

Why would my employer be interested?

Good question. Studies show that reducing the time employees spend commuting to and from work is not just great for the employee but for the employer too. Some of the benefits your employer can expect include:

Better Employee Productivity:
Employees report that they are more effective working remotely than when working from the office, not least because they have more time and avoid interruptions in the office.

Better Schedule Flexibility:

Employees who commute are more productive when they schedule their actual work time during their most effective periods and around other demands in their lives.

More Time Available for Work:
Employees who commute suggest it takes productive time out of the working day to wind down from and mentally prepare for the stress associated with commuting to and from work.

Reduced Overheads:
Organisations with well-planned employee programs have found a number of ways to reduce their space and furnishing requirements and report reductions in overhead costs.

Improved Employee Retention and Attraction: Employees who experience the benefits of flexible work programs tend to prefer such arrangements and stay with their employer rather than look for other opportunities.
