The Benefits of a Remote Work Business

With more employees seeking flexibility, businesses of all sizes are turning to remote work as a business. While some executives are worried that remote work could hamper productivity, research and experiences confirm that when businesses maintain a comprehensive policy regarding remote work that it actually improves key performance metrics and increases employee morale.

However, there are a lot of questions regarding remote working arrangements, ranging from how it compares to flextime and which companies employ a distributed workforce. There are numerous benefits to offering remote work options. From eliminating the commute (according to a survey conducted by 2020 FlexJobs), to increasing employee engagement and retention, it’s 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 have to report to an office in a physical location at least some of the time, whether it’s working from home a few days a week or being completely remote. This can also mean working at a satellite office like a coworking area or cafe, and an employee who travels.

No matter how your business defines flexible work arrangements, it is important that leaders and managers give regular feedback about the performance of employees and their communication. It’s also an excellent idea to schedule regular standups and meetings via virtual means to foster collaboration, innovation and communication. Don’t forget congratulating your remote teams whenever they merit it. If your employees feel undervalued or disengaged, their performance will suffer.
