The Benefits of a Remote Work Business

Businesses of all sizes are moving towards remote working because employees are looking for flexibility. While some leaders worry that remote work will hinder productivity, research has shown that when businesses have an effective policy of remote working it actually boosts key metrics and employee morale.

But there are a lot of questions surrounding remote working arrangements, from how it compares to flextime and which companies have a completely distributed workforce. There are many advantages to offering remote work options. From eliminating the commute (according to a survey conducted by 2020 FlexJobs) and enhancing employee engagement and retention, it is an excellent option to give employees the flexibility they need.

Flexible work arrangements can be described as any time that an employee or team doesn't report to an office space at least a portion of the time, regardless of whether that's working from home a few days per week or being completely remote. It also includes working from a satellite location, such as a coworking or cafe, and can also include a traveling workforce.

Whatever way your company defines flexible work arrangements, it's important for managers and leaders to give regular feedback on performance and communication. It's also an excellent idea to schedule regular standups and meetings via virtual means to promote collaboration, innovation and communication. Finally, don't forget to congratulate your remote teams when you feel they deserve it. If your employees are not satisfied or feel dissatisfied, their performance will be affected.
