Workplace flexibility has become extremely important for businesses in recent months. As technology has evolved over the years, it has enabled an increasing number of job roles to be carried out away from a central place of work and businesses are now utilising this as a necessity to keep operations and workflows functioning as smoothly as possible.
Although this way of working has been forced upon many businesses and employees, it does pose the question – could remote working become a new normal for many?
As well as providing businesses with a way to maintain service levels through convenience and necessity, remote working is also seen as an attractive employment perk and something many potential employees look for within an organisation.
Advancing cloud technology and cyber security solutions allow businesses to offer remote working as a viable long-term option, so that they can expand their network of employees and create a more versatile workplace that can be reactive and reliable at all times.
The benefits of remote working
Remote working offers a business several benefits and can even boost operational growth. Here are just some of the benefits of the flexible workplace revolution:
- Increased productivity
Providing employees with more freedom and flexibility is likely to result in increased productivity. It shows you trust your employees and allows them to work where they feel most comfortable.
- Less time commuting
By removing what can be unpleasant or stressful commutes, your employees are likely to feel more relaxed when working. The wellbeing of your workforce is proven to be linked with productivity, so by removing the time and costs of commuting, you are creating a healthier and happier workforce.
- Wider pool of talent
Remote working will expand the pool of talent available to your business. If you are able to hire employees from effectively anywhere in the world, you can find perfect candidates outside of your geographic area.
- Reduce costs
Having a fixed office space can be expensive. Whether you offer remote working alongside a hot-desking policy, or your employees work from home on a permanent basis, you will save money and reduce overheads.
- Lower employee turnover
By offering a more flexible way of working, employees can have a better work-life balance, which in turn increases employee retention.
