During the pandemic, organizations across the world realized that running a business didn’t necessarily mean that you must have all of your employees onsite and in the office. There are some jobs we know that are essential and requires an in-office environment. However, during this time, it was determined that employees could effectively and efficiently work either remote or hybrid. Those companies that opted to go 100% fully remote offered employees more flexibility and the ability to maintain a better work-life balance, which ultimately prove to be successful.
Now, post pandemic, working remotely is highly requested by employees as well as job seekers and is becoming the norm. Is this a bad thing? No, it actually has many benefits such as:
Increasing business profits by reducing operating cost of having employees at the office
Reducing overhead cost
Increasing productivity of employees
Getting the best talent from anywhere, not just a specific geographic location
So, when you or your organization start to think whether you should offer potential new hires or existing employees a “remote work” option, think about how engaged and productive the employee would be which ultimately will result in business success and profits.
