The Technology to Make Remote Working a Possibility for your Organization
According to a study by FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics, remote working is becoming more common; this study showed a 91% growth in remote workers over the past ten years! Nonetheless, many employers are still hesitant to allow employees to work outside of the corporate office. Some managers fear that working from home leads to decreased productivity and reduced oversight of employees. Additionally, those opposed to remote working also argue that communication challenges will transpire when employees work from home.
These are all valid concerns; however, research studies on remote working have shown that the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. For instance, a two-year study conducted by Stanford University found that productivity skyrocketed among remote workers. This same study also showed that there was an overall 50% decrease in attrition among home-based workers. In addition to these benefits, working from home also:
- Decreases sick days
- Cuts company costs
- Attracts greater talent
- Benefits the environment
- Improves employee health
Both employers and employees benefit from remote working conditions, and it seems that more companies have started to realize the numerous benefits of employing a remote workforce. An article by CNBC stated that by 2028, 73% of all teams are expected to have remote workers. Since this way of working is only likely to become more mainstream, organizations should start investing in the technology needed to make this possible.
