How to Make Remote Working Work!

Remote work, where professionals work outside the traditional office environment, is on the rise ...and for good reason! There is strong evidence that it benefits companies both financially and productively as long as 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. However, that doesn’t mean productivity suffers! In fact, 91% of Remote Workers say they get more done at home than in the office.

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.

Reduces Cost

Employees based elsewhere? Great! Your overhead will drop significantly and your employees will save on their commute.
