- Better time management as well as financial savings and less CO2 emissions
Traveling from home to work can cost a lot of time and money especially if we can take into account traffic jams. Remote work would enable people to have extra time during the day.
This type of lifestyle is also devasting for the environment and biodiversity. Remote working dramatically reduces our carbon footprint, therefore, making the planet more sustainable for future generations.
Even when we take into account the cost of working from home, such as electricity and heating, the benefits still outway the cost by far.
Companies can also save money from having their employees work from home since it saves them additional costs such as renting space and parking space or even having to pay for their employees to travel for meetings and so on.
Remote is both beneficial to employers and employees since it dramatically reduces their management costs.
- Remote work also increases productivity because of fewer distractions
Many people don’t know but working in the officer enables many distractions such as interruptions from coworkers and of course gossip. With remote work, employees can avoid these distractions and be more productive.
A home is usually a solitary place where people go to find quietude and to be able to work in such an environment could not only dramatically increase work productivity but also be beneficial to mental health.
Remote work provides employees with more flexible schedules enabling them to live more in harmony with their biological rhythm and conserve their energy during the day.
Employees would have to arrange their homes to make them suitable for work but that shouldn’t be too much of an obstacle to accomplish.
However, it is true when starting out, that personal time management might be an obstacle. That is why is it important to pre-organize your time before starting, there has to be a period of adaptation. Make sure a proper dialogue is established between employee and employer to better manage time before the work begins.
- The rapid growth of remote working
The COVID-19 global pandemic made remote working grow exponentially, as a consequence more companies are expected to also adopt this method of work even after the pandemic.
Employees considered now having flexible time and flexible space as part of the workplace or at least the modern one.
Also having flexible-time and flexible-space policies means employers are able to attract better talent for their company with almost no geographical barriers.
Offering flexible work conditions is also a great way to attract the best candidates for the company
and to get the best productivity out of them.
