Remote working is becoming increasingly popular for organisations of all sizes.
In today’s connected world, it’s possible to work from any location with a decent internet connection, such as at home, a co-working environment, or even a coffee shop anywhere across the globe.
The advantages of remote working are many, but perhaps the best reason is to avoid the wasted time and energy spent on a daily commute. Rather than spending an hour or more sitting in a car or on public transport, working remotely allows people to start work feeling relaxed and full of energy. As well as saving time, the cost savings can really add up too. Fewer car journeys also means fewer emissions, so it’s also good for the environment.
With the right tools in place, remote working is a great option to offer your staff, allowing them to strike a better work / life balance, save money and have better energy levels to tackle the working day.
This is obviously good news for the organisation offering it as well, as happy, well-rested employees will tend to out-perform tired, stressed out colleagues. It also allows organisations to cut costs by only needing smaller office space. By removing the need for staff to work at a fixed location each day, organisations are able to cast a wider geographical net when hiring, giving them greater choice when choosing who to hire.
Working remotely doesn’t mean being out of communication. There are so many tools available today to help co-workers collaborate and stay up to date with what’s going on at work.
