Long before anyone had heard of Covid-19, the demand for remote work was already growing.
Both business leaders and their employees discovered that remote work had many benefits and very few disadvantages. For instance, working remotely reduces the overheads that business owners need to pay for electricity and desk space.
Remote work also means that your employees can spend less time on their commute, and more time getting things done. It’s no wonder that 50% of the workforce is set to be operating remotely by the end of this year.
Now that a global pandemic has pushed countless companies to experiment with remote work, it seems certain that more flexible working policies will begin to appear. The question for today’s employers is how they can create a remote work policy that supports their team.
