Is Offering Remote Work a Benefit for Your Business?

Is Offering Remote Work a Benefit for Your Business?

Technology has become so commonplace in the office environment that work can be done from just about anywhere on any device. This has led to many organizations implementing a remote workforce--at least some of the time. There are actually several benefits to remote work, even for the employer, surprisingly enough.

Here are some of the best reasons your organization can benefit from remote workers being implemented into your operations.

Your Real Estate Costs Are Lower

If your employees aren’t arriving in the office every day to get work done, you don’t need as much room in your office. Businesses save a considerable amount of capital due to this. This has led to downsizing, but in a very different context compared to how you usually hear the word used. With tools allowing for remote meetings utilizing Internet conferencing solutions, there’s no excuse for never holding a meeting again.

Remote Workers Can Be More Productive

Some remote workers exhibit higher levels of productivity compared to their office-bound counterparts. They don’t need to use any time or energy getting to the office, meaning that they are more fresh and ready to go in terms of their mental wellbeing. Furthermore, they are generally in charge of their own schedule, meaning they can work when they will produce their best results.

There’s a Larger Talent Pool

For the most part, your organization will be limited to employees that either live locally or are willing to relocate. Remote workers aren’t limited by these geographical factors, giving you more opportunity to attract top talent that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Many workers, including 68 percent of surveyed millennials, would prefer to use this option, and it very well could help you maintain retention rates.

Remote workers present a certain value for your business, and the right habits can make them an extremely useful asset. Be sure to encourage these behaviors with your remote workers.

  • Smarter scheduling: A remote employee needs to be responsible for their own time, meaning that a manager can’t always keep tabs on them. Encourage your staff to keep to a routine. This helps them get the most out of their time, and it will help your in-office team know when they are available.
  • Establish a workspace: Working from home gives people the image of someone curling up on the couch with their laptop, but it’s better to have a dedicated place to work, like a home office. 
  • Dress for the office: You don’t technically have to dress up to work from home, but doing so might help you mentally prepare yourself for the day.
