Remote work, where professionals work outside the traditional office environment, is on the rise. And for good reason! There’s strong evidence that it benefits companies both financially and productively – providing you have the right tools at your disposal.
Benefits of Remote Working
- Employees are Happier and More Productive!
Staying at home reduces stress levels and the lack of commute makes it easier to maintain a positive work-life balance. That doesn’t mean productivity suffers however! In fact 91% of Remote Workers say they get more done at home than in the office
- Reduces Cost
Employees based elsewhere? Great! Your overheads will drop significantly and your employees will save on their commute
- Boosts profit
The Wall Street Journal found that companies that allowed remote working at least 3 times a month were more likely to report revenue growth across a 12 month period
- Attracts talent
Remote working forms a key element of your business’ emotional salary. Around 80% of U.S workers say they would turn down a job that didn’t offer remote working! The bottom line: don’t underestimate its sway on applicants during the recruitment process.
