Advantages of Remote Working (from Home)

Remember remote working is NOT just a trend because of Covid... Many of us have already been working remote for 5+ years. Working remotely (from home) has a large number of advantages and positive features, both for employees and employers:

  1. For the EMPLOYEE working from home, significant reduction of commute time. Reduction of personal costs for clothing, for eating out, for work life balance. It also levels the playing field for project staff who work from different locations or even time zones. It makes it necessary for us to better communicate our plans our progress and our processes because you can't just pick it up by watching the guy next door. As we globalize our workforce, we will have more remote workers in more locations, so we should all develop the skills needed to maneuver in the new environments. It also makes it possible to work across different time zones by modifying our start time based on need. The commute time is an opportunity to be more productive without taking time away from the "not at work" time.
  2. For the EMPLOYER, it reduces physical workspace costs, energy costs, network upkeep costs etc. It opens up management opportunities to everyone because being in (a location) is no longer a requirement which means more equal opportunity for all staff. It will actually bring teams closer, because many of the office politics go away when there is not an office.
So all in all, remote work is the key for a global workforce, it improves opportunity for learning for advancement, and for improving performance while reducing costs for employer and employee and assisting with better work life balance.
