Lately, we have been bombarded with statistics and statements on how training programs and work environments need to be changed if workplace efficiency is to be saved and enhanced.
Employers and HR experts are realizing the growing conflict between today’s busy lifestyles and the typical 9AM-5PM workday. It has become more challenging to find employees who are willing to spend the long hours in an office.
Instead, the idea of working remotely is becoming an increasingly appealing option for many.
And why shouldn’t it? Working remotely can offer numerous benefits. According to an Ipsos poll for Reuters, one out of five workers across the globe currently telecommutes from outside the workplace. This number is only bound to grow in years to come.
However, the idea of granting employees the freedom to work remotely does not necessarily make sense for everyone right off the bat. Despite the natural initial reluctance, as the concept of the ‘office’ workplace begins to die, leaders must be open to change and consider alternatives to the traditional work environment.
Here are a couple of points that should help you consider the benefits working remotely in any organization:
1) Remote Workers are less stressed
2) Remote Workers cost less
3) Remote workers are more engaged
4) Remote venues are better than the office
5) Commuting is bad for you
6) The new workplace framework creates more jobs
7) Remote workers are well connected
