30 30 © 2002, Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 5573_06_2002_c1 Employee Testimonials With my laptop and DSL, my PC is always on, so when I get up, I can immediately see if there are any fires that need to be put out right away. I can do that without having to waste commute time. I put the fire out and then walk to my kitchen and grab a cup of coffee…The largest benefit to Cisco, in my opinion, for teleworking is increased productivity (Cisco is getting more from me than before, due to my increased availability). The biggest benefit for me is that I can spend more time with my children. I used to be a Big 5 consultant traveling 5–6 days a week. I have never been happier because I now am able to become involved with my kids lives, and especially (which is my favorite time of all) read to my children and put them to bed every night. Bob Frazier, Vertical IBSG Manager, Manufacturing Full-Time Teleworker, 1 Year

31 31 © 2002, Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 5573_06_2002_c1 Employee Testimonials My work-from-home arrangement began in 1994 as Corporate Marketings first telecommuter. That was as a casual teleworker of 1–2 days a week…Since then Ive moved on to full-time. The full-time teleworker must be a completely loyal and dedicated professional and have a desire to make better an already great situation… My present, and long-standing office technology consists of my laptop and docking station. I have personally purchased my own color and b/w printers, fax, external storage drive, and scanner. These I purchased, including my office furniture, without hesitation or asking for assistance from my BU. I feel it a privilege to telework and am willing to go that extra distance in support of my teleworking arrangement. Gary Stewart, Technical Illustrator/ Corporate Icons Corporate Publications Full-Time Teleworker, 3 Years

32 32 © 2002, Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 5573_06_2002_c1 Employee Testimonials Practically speaking, I live in two countriesFrance and the UK. I go from France to the UK pretty much every week, as part of the flexible arrangement I worked out with Cisco during the recruiting process. The net result of this is that I spend, on average three-four days per week working for Cisco in the UK, and one-two days per week working for Cisco in France. As it turns out, Cisco has an office in Sophia Antipolis, which is 13km from my house in France. In the UK, Cisco has an office in Stockley Park, which is right beside Heathrow airport. Cisco has another office right smack in the centre of the bank district in London, which is only three tube stops from my flat in Covent Garden. The net result of all this is that I have the flexibility to work from five different places if I want: 1) The Cisco office in Stockley Park 2) The Cisco office in London City 3) My flat in Covent Garden 4) The Cisco office in Sophia Antipolis 5) My house in Cannes This is worth gold to me. I think it is safe to say that, if I didn't have this type of flexibility, I wouldn't have accepted the job with Cisco. Robert Nowak IBSG PS Project Manager UK Multi-Zone Part-Time Teleworker, 3 Months

All rights reserved. 5573_06_2002_c1 IDC Study May 2001 The big picture Most teleworking arrangements are informal, with formalization of policies varying considerably by industry Most companies have a culture that supports teleworking Level of centralized management for teleworking varies by industry Teleworking expected to become more widespread

34 34 © 2002, Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 5573_06_2002_c1 IDC Study Conclusions Teleworking is here to stay Corporations continue to support telework because they recognize the importance of offering flexible working styles for valuable employees who need to balance work/life issues Typical comment: I think employees want to balance work and family, and to minimize commuting. I think employees are more productive when they telework…Teleworking also reinforces employees commitment to the organization
