However, the prospect of implementing a work-from-home policy also raises questions
Will my team be productive?
How will I know what my team is doing?
Will we be able to collaborate?
Without onsite managers, many employers don’t know whether or not employees are productive and engaged—and without concrete data, it’s unclear how they spend their time. Sapience empowers employers to offer work from home options by giving them real-time visibility into day-to-day performance. Armed with measurable data on activity and engagement, employers gain a clear understanding of just how well their work from home arrangement is working.
- Sapience automates the reporting of work patterns, time and activity
- Employers get the data and visibility needed to measure their team’s engagement and productivity
- Using this information, companies can create baselines of expected work patterns that their team can strive to meet

Can working from home work for your business?
Recent studies have shown that telecommuters perform just as well as their in-office co-workers. One report by a Stanford professor showed that employees who worked from home were more productive, took fewer breaks, used less sick time and were less likely to quit, all while saving their employers an average of $2,000 per employee.
