If you haven’t already caught on, we’re in the middle of a workplace revolution. Nowadays, 9-5 jobs are news of the past, and working remote has become nothing short of the norm. We are here to tell you why we have found working remote to be so beneficial.
Things come up, that’s just life. Having the flexibility to work remote allows you to accommodate those last minute curveballs, like having to take your pup to the vet in the middle of the workday. As long as you plan accordingly and get your work done in a timely manner, you don’t have to take an entire day off to take Skippy to the vet! This flexibility actually ends up benefiting, the employee AND the company. You can work from home to get those emails answered before you take your pup in. It’s a win-win scenario…even Skippy agrees.
Does anyone else agree that those fluorescent lights in the typical office space will be the death of you? Having the option to work remote in a quiet coffee shop (who are we kidding, no coffee shop is quiet) or even your living room, gives you that custom environment. Now that you are working from a space of your choice, you have no excuse to not be productive. Sometimes all you need is a new environment to really focus and commit your energy and time into to start checking projects off your list.
3. Remote Is The New Norm:
According to the Society of Human Resource Management, “studies show that, by 2020, Millennials will make up 50 percent of the global workforce – and that, also by 2020, 50 percent of all U.S. employees will work remotely.” Hey you, employers, get ahead of the game! With the way the workforce is evolving, offering remote accessibility gives you the upper hand when it comes to picking your next employee and keeping your current ones! Give your current employees that extra perk, and you now have a larger pool of candidates to pick from when scouting. You don’t have to worry about having a limited number of qualified candidates that are in your region, because they can now work from any state/ region and be totally connected with all of the latest communication softwares! It’s a win-win scenario for both the employee and employer!
4. Bye-Bye Commute:
Commuting anywhere from 7am-9am is brutal, no matter where you live (especially for the LA folks)! By working remote you save money, time and most importantly, energy! Instead of commuting you can dive straight into work and answering those emails quicker, rather than sitting in traffic. This allows you extra time to focus, get in your groove and complete all of your projects before 5pm hits. In the end, it gives you more time to be productive and focus on your clients/customers.
