Working Remotely

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

In today's tech-savvy world, working remotely is becoming the norm.

For the right person, working remotely can increase productivity and reduce stress. For the right business it can increase employee retention, reduce costs and even open up the talent pool.

Consider this - the average commuter spend more than 60 minutes a day travel time, much more sometimes for those living in city areas.

Working remotely reduces stress in several ways. No commuting, no more traffic jams means remote workers are happier and healthier.

Working in a peaceful environment with fewer distractions and interruptions helps reduce the stress and makes it easier to stay on track for deadlines.

There are also some great benefits for employers thinking about hiring remote workers.

Remote workers tend to take less sick and absentee days than office employees, therefore increasing productivity.

They can even save you money in the long term. By reducing the number of employees in the office you can trim down your rent and overhead costs.

But one of the biggest benefits for employers has to be that you can hire the best of the best without being limited to people living in a particular geographical area.
